BIM: first milestone in European standardisation   


Thanks to the close collaboration with the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), CEN/TC 442 (Building Information Modelling) adopted three International Standards as European ones:

  • EN ISO 16739:2016 (WI=00442002): Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) for data sharing in the construction and facility management industries (ISO 16739:2013)
  • EN ISO b12006-3:2016 (WI=00442003): Building construction - Organisation of information about construction works - Part 3: Framework for object-oriented information (ISO 12006-3:2007)
  • EN ISO 29481:2016 (WI=00442001): Building information models - Information delivery manual - Part 2: Interaction framework (ISO 29481-2:2012)

Further work is ongoing to complement the European BIM standardisation project.
