International Building Operations Standard

International Building Operations Standard

RICS has developed an International Building Operations Standard (IBOS). This is an innovative new data-led standard which goes beyond the traditional ways of measuring building performance, and places user experience at its heart. This person-centred and holistic approach allows organisations to use data to measure and benchmark the quality of their buildings in terms of function, sustainability, cost, performance, and compliance with best practice. 

A self-assessment tool is also being to developed as part of IBOS. This will enable input of data to score buildings against a variety of measures, in order to make continuous improvements and deliver better buildings for people, society, and the planet.

The standard will be relevant for:

  • Service / FM providers
  • Asset managers
  • Occupiers / occupier representatives
  • Landlords and tenants
  • Health and safety / Wellbeing professionals
  • Technology providers
  • Environmental / sustainability professional
  • Investors
  • Local authorities and central government
