Product Data Templates can be used to guide the creation of specific product data. Manufacturers and suppliers can include their detailed contact information and product information. Conceived by the CIBSE BIM Group, Product Data Templates (PDTs) are standard product ‘questionnaires', one for each equipment type, that manufacturers only complete once for each of their products, to serve the needs of all people, projects and all purposes which include COBie.  Written in simple Excel format, PDTs are usable with all BIM platforms and the need to grapple with multiple platforms disappears.

These templates are offered without any warranty but with the intention that corrections or improvements will be incorporated where possible: CIBSE welcomes any comments, corrections or suggested improvements, and it particularly invites professional and trade associations to review the templates relevant to their sectors.
