ISO 12911
ISO 12911


This standard establishes a framework for providing specifications for the internal commissioning and implementation of building information modelling (BIM) during both delivery and in-use phases.

It is applicable to buildings, infrastructure, facilities and managed landscapes, of any size or complexity.

Authors of BIM implementation specifications, including international and national institutions as well as individual organizations, can use this framework to document their expectations in a way that is clear, concise and checkable. Those supporting specific software application usage can also follow the framework.

Implementers of information management processes will benefit from the clear structure and the ability to compare and merge BIM implementation specifications, potentially from multiple sources, to mobilize, execute and check their internal BIM implementations.
