Developing open standards & specifications for BIM

Open standards

Our open standards for information sharing are covered by the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) data model, the Information Delivery Manual (IDM) data exchange protocols, and the buildingSMART Data Dictionary (bSDD) - plus the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF).

Projects & work groups

Our development of open internationally-recognised standards for information sharing is co-ordinated by groups working in our Technical Room, Process Room, and Product Room and Infrastructure Room.

Practical support for BIM implementation

Software certification

Our ISO-endorsed software certification process allows vendors to demonstrate that their building information modelling (BIM) applications conform to the latest open standards.


Our training accreditation scheme (currently under development) will enable providers of Building Information Modelling (BIM) training to demonstrate that their products and programmes meet rigorous quality standards.
