NATS has become the first air navigation services provider (ANSP) to be certified against ISO 55001:2014, the new international asset management standard, receiving the endorsement for UK en route operations from Lloyd’s Register.
NATS is the first company in the UK to receive the certification, the first ANSP and only the second company in the world.
The certification cements NATS’ status as a leader in best practice and the firm says it will bring benefits by driving asset management and resulting in value and cost savings.
Simon Hocquard, operations director of strategy for NATS, said: ‘Achieving the ISO 55001 standard for asset management is a fantastic accomplishment that has resulted from the tireless efforts of the team involved.
‘This culmination of their hard work and dedication will benefit the business for years to come.’
