ISO 19650 Certification

We have a refreshing and customer focused approach to all of our certification services.

ISO 19650 is the mark of an organisation that is demonstrating their commitment to BIM (Building Information Modelling)

Why do I need ISO 19650?

ISO 19650 is a series of international standards that define the processes for effective information management in the design, build and management of building assets, i.e Building Information Modelling.

Replacing PAS 1192 in 2019, it enables teams to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Achieving ISO 19650 certification demonstrates that your organisation adopts an internationally recognised standard for Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Large private and public sector construction tenders increasingly stipulate that organisations have ISO 19650 certification in order to qualify.

Working within this standard showcases that your organisation works towards best practice within a construction and facilities management program.

It also enables your business to reduce unnecessary costs through wasted resources and time.

What is ISO 19650?

The process


The beginning bit

  • First of all you need the relevant processes in place so that you are ‘assessment ready’. If you are unsure you can have a pre assessment gap analysis or if you need some third party help to do this.

  • Complete our online application to start the process off. This will gather information about your organisation so that we can provide an assessment plan to meet your business requirements.

  • We will issue a quotation based on the information you have provided in the application form.

  • If you want to proceed, simply accept the quotation by email.

  • We will run through the application to gain a deeper understanding of your business.


The middle bit

  • We will match you with one of our excellent auditors and book in your date for a “Stage One Assessment.” This assessment is a document review to ensure your processes meet the ISO 19650 standard.

  • Your “Stage Two Assessment” will also be programmed in, usually 4-6 weeks after your Stage One. This is a review of your day to day operations so that we can collect evidence to demonstrate your working practices are in line with your processes.

  • If there are no major non-conformances following from your Stage Two we will issue your certification. If there are non-conformances you will have 6 weeks to address them and provide proof.


The ongoing bit

  • Your certificate will be valid for three years. To retain validity, surveillance audits will be conducted in year two and three.

  • The surveillance assessment time is calculated as 50% of the time of your stage two and focused on assessing current/recent projects.

  • A recertification audit to continue into the next 3 year cycle will be booked in before expiry of your initial three year certificate to ensure there is no lapse in certification.

  • We always work closely with our clients to ensure they are happy with our service and have ongoing communications throughout your cycle to discuss any changes that may affect your certification.
