- ISO 19650-1 Organization of information about construction works - Information management using building information modelling. Part 1: Concepts and principles.
- ISO 19650-2 Organization of information about construction works - Information management using building information modelling. Part 2: Delivery phase of assets.
The final version was published in January 2019, BS EN ISO 19650 1&2:2018, 'Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM). Information management using building information modelling'.
It applies to the whole life cycle of a built asset, including strategic planning, initial design, engineering, development, documentation and construction, day-to-day operation, maintenance, refurbishment, repair and end-of-life. Use of the standard will help remove barriers to collaborative working and competitive tendering across borders.
Jøns Sjøgren, chair of the ISO technical subcommittee that developed the standards siad; “ISO 19650 was developed on the basis of the tried-and-tested British standard BS 1192 and publicly available specification PAS 1192-2, which have already been shown to help users save up to 22 % in construction costs. Taking this to an international level not only means more effective collaboration on global projects, but allows designers and contractors working on all kinds of building works to have clearer and more efficient information management.”
Additions in 2020 included Part 3, about managing the operational phase of assets and Part 5, about security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management.

In August 2019, the UK BIM Alliance, CDBB and BSI published guidance to help individuals and organisations in the UK understand the fundamental principles of building information modelling according to ISO 19650 Parts 1 and 2 (source: UK BIM Alliance). This guidance is now incorporated into the UK BIM Framework, and freely available from its website.
