What is this standard about?
This international standard is the second part in the ISO 19650 series on building information modelling (BIM). This part supplies information management requirements in the delivery phase of assets.
Who is this standard for?
- Those involved in the procurement, design, construction and/or commissioning of built assets
- Those involved in delivering asset management activities, including operations and maintenance
Why should you use this standard?
It specifies requirements for information management, in the form of a management process, within the context of the delivery phase of assets and the exchanges of information within it, when using building information modelling.
It can be applied to all types of assets and by all types and sizes of organizations, regardless of the chosen procurement strategy.
What’s changed since the last update?
This standard is based on BS 1192:2007+A2:2016 and PAS 1192-2:2013, which (along with BS EN ISO 19650-1) it supersedes.
It is anticipated that if organizations are already using the existing BIM Level 2 BS/PAS suite of standards no changes will be required as there should be no inconsistency with projects using the ISO 19650 documents.
Notwithstanding, to assist the UK construction industry with some necessary process adjustments, BS EN ISO 19650-2 includes a National Annex to align the ISO standard’s requirements with BIM Level 2 in the UK and is published alongside PD 19650-0:2019 which supplies transitional guidance.
