On the 11th of October 2022, the Cyprus Organisation for Standardisation (CYS), hosted in Ayia Napa, the Plenary Meeting of the European Standardisation Technical Committee CEN TC 348 responsible for drafting Standards for Facility Management. The meeting was taken hybrid (face to face and virtual as well) with more than 15 participants. Within the agenda, among other subjects such as the provision of furniture and workplace design as a service and development of a common introduction text in the EN 15221- series of standards, was also the Cyprus’ proposal for Digital Transformation of FM. The proposal has been unanimously approved and fully supported by all other Country-members. CYS National representative at CEN TC 348, stated that it is a great achievement and big opportunity to digitalize the Facility Management but on the other hand it will be challenging to work hard for the effective accomplishment of this task.
