The British Standards Institution has issued a code of practice for asset management. BS 8536-2:2016 gives briefing recommendations for design and construction in relation to energy, telecommunication, transport, water and other utilities’ infrastructure to ensure that design takes into account the expected performance of the asset in use over its planned operational life.

It adopts the structure and format of BS 8536-1:2015 and therefore incorporates the BIM Level 2 and Government Soft Landings briefing principles.
