The First Edition of the Building Information Model (BIM) Protocol published in 2013 identifies and puts into place specific obligations, liabilities and associated limitations on the use of the Building Information Models, unfortunately at the first version of the protocol did not contain any specific framework for Cyber Security.

In May 2015 British Standard Institution (BSI) published a Publicly Available Specification PAS 1192-5:2015. The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) sponsored the PAS in an attempt to improve security while working on BIM projects.

CIC working with members of the council published the second edition of the Building Information Model (BIM) Protocol in 2018 in response to the PAS Specifications.  This time compliance with security references has been included, mainly referring to PAS 1192-5:2015 with a framework in the form of Appendix 3. This version of the protocol puts significant responsibility on Built Asset Security Manager. (Standard Protocol for use in projects using Building Information Models, 2018)

However, the second edition of the CIC Building Information Model (BIM) Protocol, have been upgraded to align with a new revision of the PAS 1192-5:2015. Unfortunately, the new PAS was never published. Instead of PAS a new set of International Standards, namely:  BS EN ISO 19650-1:2018 and BS EN ISO 19650-2:2018 was published.

Thus another revision of the CIC Building Information Model (BIM) Protocol was required. UK BIM Alliance responded with a new Information Protocol published in May 2020 to support the BS EN ISO 19650-2 the delivery phase of assets.[1]

The recently published UK BIM Framework Information protocol is one of the long awaiting publications
that can be used to ensure that BS EN ISO 19650 guidance has an appropriate legal framework. The
protocol allows unifying relevant information requirements in one place and further promotes BIM in the
built environment.

Second Information protocol to support BS EN ISO 19650-3 the operational phase of assets is due to be published by the end of 2021.
