“The new edition of the IIMM is the global benchmark for those in infrastructure asset management and a valuable resource for all practitioners. Internationally recognised I am delighted that the sixth edition now provides insights in sustainability as well as technology.

“Infrastructure is the foundation of our communities and provides the platform for the services that people take for granted. Sustainable infrastructure asset management is therefore essential to delivering core services to current and future generations. This isn’t easy, it is complex and needs a whole of organisation response based on good information to ensure assets are maintained and replaced at the right time, in the right way and they are appropriately funded.
The environment that we operate in is changing at pace and having a significant influence on the way assets need to be managed. I congratulate IPWEA on the development of the 6th edition of the IIMM, to reflect these risks and opportunities, such as a changing climate and technology advances. I encourage the use of the IIMM, which reflects best practice asset management.”

“I am very pleased to provide a testimonial to this important international manual. Our communities demand the upmost in professional competency by the practitioners who deliver public works services. Coupled with probably the greatest challenge facing municipalities across the world today, more than ever, is ensuring the effective and sustainable delivery of services from the infrastructure assets acquired over the years is maintained.”
A key objective of the International Federation of Municipal Engineering is to foster technical and cultural exchange between municipal and public works engineers worldwide and we have become increasingly aware of the value the International Infrastructure Management Manual provides to the public works sector. This Manual guides infrastructure managers in all areas to develop, adapt and operate sustainable asset networks at the agreed level of service while managing risk and cost.
On behalf of IFME, we are pleased to support this latest edition of the International Infrastructure Management Manual.”

“The IIMM has been the industry standard and go-to reference manual for asset management for our organisation for over a decade. The breadth of asset management practice it covers is vast and it is relevant for the management of all infrastructure asset types. It’s the one reference document during the covid-19 lockdown I wished I had picked up on the way out the door. What’s great is there is an electronic subscription option also! The recent updates to the manual provide a refresh that ensures that the manual doesn’t get out of date and remains as the pre-eminent resource for asset managers in our organisation.”

“This is an excellent publication that I have used many times in my career. Congratulations on the latest edition.”
Dave Daines | Chair at Asset Management Council
“I have been an avid user of the International Infrastructure Management Manual for over 10 years now and have always found that it perfectly complements the ISO5500x series of standards as a part of my armoury for implementing asset management in many sectors around the globe. This sixth edition of the IIMM continues to effectively complement ISO standards to provide the global benchmark for asset management professionals. It covers new topics such as climate change and technology coupled with in depth case studies ensuring that it remains highly relevant and practical.”
Rhys Davies, MBA CEng FIAM MIET | Chair of ISO/TC251 Asset Management
“The November 2020 release of the International Infrastructure Management Manual is a must have reference for communities of all sizes to help guide their infrastructure asset management program. The new release shows that Asset Management as a practice has converged with how well the ISO 55000 Asset Management standards and the IIMM align and compliment each other.
The structure of IIMM is very intuitive, with each section providing a concise overview of its content. The electronic version is easy to navigate and user friendly.
For APWA members looking to use the APWA Asset Management Roadmap to guide the implementation of their asset management system the IIMM provides a valuable resource as you map out your infrastructure asset management journey.”
