GEFMA 444

Certification procedure for CAFM software through the GEFMA.

On the basis of the GEFMA 444 guideline (as of May 2019), the currently submitted certification procedure comprises 15 criteria catalogs (basic catalog, space, maintenance, inventory, cleaning, reservation, locking system, moving, rental and Environmental Management, energy controlling, Safety and occupational safety and help and service desk). Basic catalog, space management and maintenance management are minimum criteria and are mandatory.

The GEFMA certificate is issued for the specifically tested version of a software for a period of 2 years. It documents compliance with minimum standards for application functionalities of CAFM software products. With the receipt of the certificate however no comparison or evaluation in the sense of a ranking of CAFM products is connected.

The certification of CAFM software represents a contribution to quality assurance in facility management and documents compliance with practical minimum standards for application functionalities of CAFM products when used as part of IT support for facility management. It is part of the GEFMA quality offensive. Receiving the certificate does not involve any comparison or evaluation in terms of a ranking of CAFM products.
The only distinguishing feature is "certificate granted" or "certificate not granted" in relation to selected Facility Management processes that are stored in criteria catalogs. It is up to the potential user to make a factually and technically well-founded and specific selection of the CAFM products offered on the market.
It should be explicitly stated that the certificate alone does not guarantee success in the implementation of a CAFM system. Here you have to refer to the extensive guideline on CAFM (GEFMA 400 ff) in its current version, which documents the complexity of CAFM as well as a number of other success criteria, such as the conceptual preparation and assurance of up-to-dateness and high quality of the CAFM Inventory data is described.
