(2011-12-21)  VDI 3805 is being developed into an International Standard upon the initiative of German specialists.

The new standard currently under development – ISO 16757 "Product data for building services plant models" – will have the same structure as the well-known VDI 3805 series of guidelines. One of the advantages of internationalization in the building services sector is the cost-efficient implementation of transnational projects. Soon a standard data exchange will be possible among planners, builders and operators working across borders for all stages of the project; in this way, isolated solutions will be avoided. More
