PAS 14191:2020 Built environment – Management and operation of interconnected construction data dictionaries – Specification

The exchange of information is one of the fundamental precepts for Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Digital Engineering. To facilitate this exchange in a digital manner, each project participant needs to be able to understand the incoming information and format outgoing information in a way that is understandable by any and all recipients.

CPA sponsored this Publicly Available Specification (PAS) from BSI to specify the requirements for a management process for the creation, acceptance, distribution, interoperability and maintenance of structured information within construction data dictionaries for the built environment. It covers the development, approval and management of structured information within construction data dictionaries, such as data templates. It does not cover data dictionary ontologies or taxonomies. This PAS complements BS EN ISO 23386.

The PAS is available on the BSI Website
