AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALANDGUIDE TO ISO 19650ISO 19650 - Organization and digitization ofinformation about buildings and civil engineeringworks, including building information modelling(BIM) - Information management using buildinginformation modelling.
THE GUIDEACKNOWLEDGEMENTSSince 2015, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and asset information management experts from around theworld have contributed to the development of ISO 19650-1 and ISO 19650-2 which were subsequently released inDecember 2018.In Australia, Standards Australia committee BD-104 has made a significant contribution to the development of theISO 19650 series and continues to be involved in the development of a number of related ISO standards. Australianindustry stakeholders will have the opportunity to participate in the development of a National Foreword and Annexureto the Standards Australia release of ISO 19650-1 and ISO 19650-2 (AS ISO 19650-1 and AS ISO 19650-2) plannedfor the near future, reflecting Australian BIM best practice in more detail.Whilst the New Zealand authors of this Guide did not contribute specifically to the development of ISO 19650 througha formal channel, many have been instrumental in the progression of BIM across New Zealand and Australia. Their vastexperience is reflected in this Guide and in the comprehensive BIM guidance documents for New Zealand - the NewZealand BIM Handbook (see references section).We are still humans.Whilst the authors have used their collective experiences to create this Guide, we may not have got everything right!If you would like to be involved in future releases of this Guide or to support BD-104 with the National Foreword andAnnexure, please contact [email protected] Without the dedication and commitment of the below volunteerauthors (and the patience of their partners, kids, pets and employers) none of this would be possible.

In the ANZ region and across the world, BIM is being actively implemented by organisations seeking to improveinformation management practices. The main focus has been on improving design and construction processes,however, collectively the industry has failed to exploit BIM’s key value proposition, namely how to enhance informationmanagement practices for the ultimate asset owner.Since the early 2000’s, the ANZ construction industry has adopted and adapted many BIM principles from elsewhere,developing their own approaches. Whilst these approaches have supported the early adopters of BIM they have alsocaused some confusion with different terminology and techniques. To accelerate the adoption of BIM and betterinformation management practices in ANZ, simple guidance for practitioners is essential - hence this Guide.PAS1192-2 and ISO 19650 - How do they differ?No attempt has been made to compare ISO 19650 with PAS 1192-2 as thedocument PD 19650-0:2019 Transition guidance to BS EN ISO 19650,available from the BSI Group covers this transition. Those more familiarwith either ISO 19650 or the UK PAS 1192 series of documents, may stillfind this Guide useful.THE GUIDEFOREWORDThe volunteer authors of this Guide are passionate about information management using BIM processes. Our goal increating this Guide is to support the adoption of the ISO 19650 series. However, by their very nature, InternationalStandards distil content on their subject matter down to the bare essentials. They state the requirements as succinctlyand unambiguously as possible in a strictly defined format to facilitate international adoption. As many countries haveto agree on the terminology used, this can lead to the inclusion of terms for some items that appear unfamiliar in alocal context. This typically makes them more difficult to read, particularly for a reader new to the subject. This Guideaims to reduce some of that confusion by highlighting in italics where a term is taken from ISO 19650, as demonstratedin the following sentence.“Information requirements must support the organisational business decision-making process (key decisionpoints) in step with project stages and align to operational uses of asset information at critical asset trigger events(commissioning, planned maintenance, failure, decommissioning etc).”Our goal is to pique your interest in ISO 19650, so you can continue to expand your knowledge in the subject matter,can collaborate with others using the same terms and approaches and so that, collectively, we can improve the ANZconstruction industry we enjoy working in. The purpose of this Guide is to explain the high-level concepts andprinciples found in ISO 19650 in terms more readily understood by people in our region. The central section of thisGuide follows the same parts, section headings and subheadings structure as the Standards.This format allows this Guide to act as a companion document to ISO 19650-1. As such, sections can be easilyreferenced between the two documents. Our goal is to continue to develop this Guide when future parts to the ISO19650 series are released.AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND GUIDE TO ISO 19650 INTRODUCTIONPAGE 3
THE GUIDEHEIt should be noted that this Guide is not intended to be a replacement for the Standards. ISO 19650-2 in particulardescribes the requirements and approach for implementing ISO 19650-1 concepts and principles on a project in a“step by step” fashion, aligned to project delivery stages.The authors have purposely developed this Guide as a section by section companion document to enable theANZ construction industry to become more familiar with the approaches, processes and terminology described,predominately in ISO 19650-1. We strongly encourage readers to purchase ISO 19650, as this Guide does notattempt to recreate all the detail found in these Standards.Our aim is to make it easier to understand (at a high level) the benefits of using ISO 19650 and how it relates to otherStandards such as ISO 9001, ISO 41000, ISO 55000, ISO 21500, ISO 16739-1:2018 and ISO 22263.One of the core elements in the BIM value proposition is defining the operator/owner's Asset Information Requirements, allowing the project deliveryteam to align their efforts. Information can then be effectively planned andmanaged to enable collaborative project delivery practices and so that it canthen be structured to support ongoing asset management practices.HOW TO ACCESS ISO 19650-1 AND ISO 19650-2SAI Global distributes all ISO Standards in ANZ, with access generally on an organisational basis:ISO 19650 - Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works,including building information modelling (BIM) - Information management using building informationmodellingPart 1: Concepts and principlesPart 2: Delivery phase of the assetsPlease check with your standards coordinator as it will be essential to read this Guide as a companion to the Standard.A NOTE ON EXISTING ANZ BIM DOCUMENTS AND APPROACHESTo assist the reader, we have included links embedded within this Guide to the many previously developed ANZ BIMdocuments. We note that many of these documents need to be “brought up to speed” with the ISO 19650 series interms of the language and terms used. We hope with the introduction of the ISO 19650 series, authors of those existingANZ documents will realign them to the ISO 19650 approach in the near term.BS 1192:2007 A2:2016 and PAS 1192-2 (which some ANZ projects and clients have adopted) have now beenwithdrawn. Appointing parties need to consider the impact of applying the ISO 19650 series to their existing and futureprojects. All projects that are transitioning from the PAS 1192 suite to the ISO 19650 series should refer to PD 196500:2019 Transition Guidance to BS EN ISO 19650.PAGE 4AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND GUIDE TO ISO 19650 INTRODUCTION

THE GUIDETHE ANZ GUIDE TO ISO 19650INTRODUCTIONBuilt assets are a key part of modern life; from your home, to your work and to your transportation networks. Whencreating, extending or refurbishing built assets, the whole project (delivery) team has the core responsibility ofdelivering them on time, within budget, and to the required level of quality.The built environment is a fundamental expression of civilisation. It is founded on the effective management of assetand project information. Across the asset’s lifecycle, many stakeholders (referred to in the Standards as actors) willcontribute to its creation and maintenance. Actors have an obligation to understand where the asset is located withinits lifecycle, alongside the data, decisions, objectives, and operating context that created the need for the asset in thefirst place.The scale of potential benefits offered by the adoption of ISO 19650 should not be underestimated. The current levelof infrastructure spending in ANZ is significant and the built environment is becoming increasingly sophisticated,involving automation, the Internet of Things and smart, integrated cities. Projects are becoming increasingly morecomplex and demanding.Reliable information and effective information management have always been fundamental to the success ofconstruction projects. Clients expect professional service providers to manage this information appropriately priorto its handover back to the operator. Digital technology-based practices such as BIM and, more broadly, DigitalEngineering (DE), are powerful collaborative processes that can facilitate information management, with thepotential to revolutionise
