The scope of the committee is the organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM)

SC 13 is charged by TC 59 to focus on international standardization of information through the whole life cycle of buildings and infrastructure across the built environment

  • to enable interoperability of information;
  • to deliver a structured set of standards, specifications and reports to define, describe, exchange, monitor, record and securely handle information, semantics and processes, with links to geospatial and other related built environment information;
  • to enable object-related digital information exchange.

Prepared by the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania, and approved by the Goverment of the Republic of Lithuania.
This document was published on the 12th August 2020 and is the decision of the Government on the approval of the establishment of Lithuanian national construction information classification system (NSIK).
Lithuanian national construction information classification system (also known as NSIK – in Lithuanian Nacionalinis Statybos Informacijos Klasifikatorius) is one of the essential measures to ensure general application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) methods based on collaboration. Lithuanian national construction information classification system is being planned for 2023 and will be prepared by implementing BIM-LT project.

Technical standards for BIM mostly describe the writing of certain data and information, and are not intended for general users, but rather for authors of software tools and a group of experts in the field. An exception however, is the CSN EN ISO 19650 standards, which describe processes and data handling. The standard serves as a guide for refining procedures so that the data generated meets the expectations of those who needed it. This Application Guide for ISO 19650 has been written and published by the Czech National Standards body CSN.

The set of technical standards CSN EN ISO 19650 is intended for all persons and organizations involved in the whole life cycle of the construction .Historically, it is customary that Czech technical standards are written directly as a guide. In this case, it is necessary to consider that the standards taken over from international participants are not specific guidelines, but principles and rules. Specific implementation and use, setting up your own processes, documents and the forms are up to the user or are subject to further specification at national level. This guide will explain the aspects of how ISO19650 should be applied to projects.

Provides an international framework for the creation of a information Schema for the Railway infrastructure domain

This guidance was issued in July 2019 by the UK BIM Alliance, BSI and CDDB as a complement to?Information Management according to BS EN ISO 19650 – Guidance Part 1: Concepts, published in April 2019.
It aims to help UK businesses and public clients understand the processes indicated in ISO 19650, with a focus on the different parties and their team activities referred in the standard: the Appointing Party, Lead Appointed Party and Appointed Party; the Project Team, Delivery Team and Task Team.?
The guidance explains the role of each party by summarising their activities and outputs at each stage of the construction project, for instance how to coordinate information requirements, delivery milestones and information standards. It covers how to establish the information protocol, the management of the common data environment, how the information should be shared, reviewed and eventually archived alongside the lessons learned to help with future projects.??
It details how each party fits into a team and across teams, which documents need compiling, which resources need sourcing and/or mobilising, how information models are assessed for compliance and which party is in charge of, say, establishing the delivery team’s capability and capacity.
A summary provides an overview of the Information Management Process, divided in stages, from Assessment and Need through Tender, Appointment, Mobilization, Collaborative Production of information and Information Model Delivery to Project Close-out.

The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) is a public standards organization whose mission is to foster the economy of the European Single Market and the wider European continent in global trading, the welfare of European citizens and the environment by providing an efficient infrastructure to interested parties for the development, maintenance and distribution of coherent sets of standards and specifications. CEN is one of three European Standardization Organizations (together with CENELEC and ETSI) that have been officially recognized by the European Union and by the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) as being responsible for developing and defining voluntary standards at European level.

CEN TC 442 is the technical committee working under CEN with the purpose of supporting the creation and management of BIM related standards. The scope of CEN TC 442 is BIM standardization in the field of structured semantic life-cycle information for the built environment. The committee aim to develop a structured set of standards, specifications and reports which specify methodologies to define, describe, exchange, monitor, record and securely handle asset data, semantics and processes with links to geospatial and other external data. Through this website you can see all of the work completed and published to date as well as the current workplan for upcoming developments.

BIM Loket is working towards a sector in which working with BIM and open standards is the norm. As part of this they need to develop information and training related to BIM to upskill the industry and increase the capability to deliver these requirements. The BIM Loket website contains lots of information and support documentation like this foundation to information delivery. Collaboration is better if the information we build on is interchangeable, structured, unambiguous, correct, complete and reusable. The BIM basic information delivery specification (BIM basis ILS) is a good first step for making this ambition a reality.

The ILS Design & Engineering was created to communicate the information needs for the design and engineering phase unambiguously and recognizably. This specifies what information must be present in the process, where, and when. Not knowing when and where to provide or expect information causes frustrations, errors and an inefficient process. This problem seems to be becoming increasingly acute due to the increasing computerization and digitization. In our fragmented sector, an organization alone will not be able to break this ban and we must collectively implement structural improvements. The ILS O&E symbolizes the activation of the collective and the integral approach.
The solution offered is to make sure that we understand each other, for this, there must be an understanding of the content on the one hand and recognition of the way of communicating on the other. With the launch of ILS O&E, the sector has a tool with which organizations within projects can create a project-specific ILS. Alignment has been found on content and the way of communicating. By standardizing the demand side (communicating the information needs), the supply side can organize itself more efficiently and effectively. This will contribute in its entirety to the integrality of the design process and the transfer of information to production.
