About the UKAS Building Information Modelling programme
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an important element of the digital revolution that is transforming the construction sector and the UK’s infrastructure through innovative technology and approaches.
ISO 19650-2 requires information management processes containing the activities through which construction delivery teams can collaboratively produce information and minimize wasteful activities. UKAS is undertaking a pilot assessment programme, which will lead to ISO/IEC 17065:2012 accreditation for certification to ISO 19650-2.
Due to the fact that ISO 19650-2 does not constitute a certification scheme as defined by ISO/IEC 17065, it will be necessary for accredited Certification Bodies to have developed a ‘process’ certification scheme that satisfies these requirements and this will be evaluated as part of the assessment.

The ISO/IEC 17065:2012 pilot programme for the initial accreditation of ISO 19650-2:2018 (Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM) – Information management using building information modelling) has now been completed and accreditation has been granted to BRE Global Ltd, BSI Assurance UK Ltd and LRQA Verification Ltd.
Following the completion of the pilot programme, certification bodies interested in gaining accreditation for delivery of ISO 19650-2:2018 process certification can now apply for accreditation using the AC1 application form found here UKAS Application Forms
