BSI and nima are developing resources in the form of standards, guidance, an information protocol, checklists and FAQs to support individuals and organizations in the UK to understand the fundamental principles of information management using building information modelling.

The guidance is structured as indicated below. Guidance 0 provides a high-level case for information management. Guidance 1 and A-F support the implementation of the published ISO 19650 series. Guidance 2 and Guidance 3 pick up on content specific to ISO 19650-2 and ISO 19650-3 respectively, whilst Guidance 4 picks up content specific to ISO 19650-4. Additional guidance is also available as part of the UK BIM Framework to support the transition to ISO 19650 and Government Soft Landings.


Please let us have your feedback – we would be really pleased to receive your comments and queries about the guidance so that we can continue to develop and improve it. Do get in touch by emailing us at [email protected].
