Guidance

The Concepts Guidance first released in April and updated in July 2019 is brief and high level and is aimed at a broad audience. It explores the general requirements of the ISO 19650 series alongside the case for building information modelling and digital transformation.

The Processes for Project Delivery Guidance is an evolving resource. It will be subject to quarterly updates as we explore the requirements of ISO 19650-2 in increasing detail. This 2nd Edition focuses on providing guidance for the different parties that are mentioned throughout ISO 19650 – the Appointing Party, the Lead Appointed Party and the Appointed Party. It identifies key activities and outputs for each party, what should be documented in appointments/contracts (in terms of information activities/deliverables) and what clauses within ISO 19650-2 are particularly relevant to each party. A Process summary sets out all the clauses and shows the interaction and responsibilities of the parties. It is relevant to anyone who might be involved in a project team– client, consultants, contractors, specialists etc.

BSI have also published PD 19650-0:2019 Transition guidance to BS EN ISO 19650. This transition guidance has been prepared specifically to help the existing users of BS 1192 and PAS 1192‑2 understand any changes made between the UK’s existing standards, and the ISO documents which are to replace them.
