ISO 19650 templates (OIR, PIR, EIR, AIR, BEP, TIDP, MIDP, Responsibility Matrix and more)

We explain ISO 19650 BIM (Building Information Modeling) standards, share simple templates and practical examples to help you become ISO 19650 compliant!

1. Is ISO 19650 important?

BIM standards have been developing for many years – there are multiple guidelines, principles, and options available for BIM teams.

With so many options, BIM standards have become increasingly confusing, and many professionals are struggling to keep up.

Fear not!!

As an industry, we welcome the suite of ISO 19650 BIM standards to now provide a unified approach for Information Management 🎉

So YES – it’s particularly important to understand ISO 19650 if you use BIM (Building Information Modeling) on your projects.

2. Ok it’s important – so what is ISO 19650?

ISO 19650 is an international BIM standard that aims to consolidate the way the Information Management function is implemented.

ISO 19650 is a significant step for BIM in our industry.

However, our industry does need a little more than just the standards documents.

To help our industry the UK BIM Alliance has done an amazing job to provide guidance to support these ISO standards.

We can now build on these standards and guidance with complimentary ISO templates and a software framework to simplify the implementation of ISO 19650 on your projects!

4. What you will learn about ISO 19650

In this series of articles, we will:

  • explain the ISO 19650 standards
  • share lots of practical tips about each ISO 19650 document type (EIR, AIR, BEP, etc.)
  • walkthrough steps to create OIRs, PIRs, AIRs, EIRs, BEPs, Responsibility Matrices, RACI Charts, TIDPs, MIDPs
  • show you how to use the Level of Information Need approach
  • understand the use and importance of BIM data templates
  • describe how to implement the Information Protocol for BIM contracts
  • share online templates to create your own ISO compliant workflow 
  • and more! 💪

All so that you can implement ISO 19650 with the most rapid and productive approach possible!

Here we will be updating the links to each document type with templates and videos for each:

OIR – Organizational Information Requirements
PIR – Project Information Requirements
EIR – Exchange Information Requirements
AIR – Asset Information Requirements
Pre-BEP – Pre-appointment BIM Execution Plan
BEP – BIM Execution Plan
RM – Responsibility Matrix
TIDP – Task Information Delivery Plans

6. How to use the ISO 19650 guidance and templates

You can even join other BIM experts around the world to provide your feedback on the live templates to help improve them.

7. Our promise of less BIM jargon

Throughout this series of articles, we will try to use the least amount of BIM and technical jargon possible – some acronyms have become unavoidable. Still, where necessary, we will provide the abbreviation, the complete name, AND a concise description to leave nothing in doubt.
