The Information Protocol has been created as part of the BS EN ISO 19650-2:2018 requirements and provides an example of what could be included in an Information Protocol to be used when confirming to BS EN ISO 19650-2:2018 for construction projects and their appointments.

“We hope the industry will find this a helpful document in their journey to incorporate BS EN ISO 19650 into their projects in a clear and risk-managed way.”
Development of BIM
Co-author Simon Lewis, said: “The publication of the Information Protocol marks another step in the development of BIM as an international standard and puts in place what the authors hope will be a useful and accessible resource to help parties structure clear and workable contracts.
“I have very much enjoyed working with May and Andrew on what has been a lengthy but never less than exciting and interesting project. “
Co-author Andrew Croft, said: “The Information Protocol will support the implementation of BS EN ISO 19650, a key standard for the adoption of BIM, alongside other important guidance published by the UK BIM Framework.
“We would encourage the legal and construction industry to familiarise themselves with the Information Protocol and make appropriate use of the Information Protocol in all contracts to which BS EN ISO 19650 applies.”
Dale Sinclair, director of the Construction Industry Council, added: “The Information Protocol cements the work of everyone involved in developing the UK BIM Framework in recent years.
