Corporate real estate organizations need to be able to analyse the physical space in their facilities for a number of purposes. It is being proposed this standard is focussed on two specific applications of space data:a) Space Planning: requires accurate information about the current use type of space and the ability to link the space to drawings and/or building information models ; and b) Cost Allocation: requires accurate information about the users of space and the ability to link the users to business units and/or cost centres.
For further information on how to participate in this Workgroup contact Monika Horner, Workgroup Project Manager and OSCRE Director of Standards.
The second Workgroup teleconference call will be held on Thursday 30th 2013 at 1600hrs British Summer Time (BST).
The Commercial Information Exchange (CIE) Standard enables the exchange of commercial property information for lease or sale transactions between, for example, a broker and a listing service.
The Commercial Introductions (CIE) Standard enables the exchange of commercial property information for sale transactions between, for example, seller and investment agents/advisors In the UK.
The Commercial Property Information Exchange Standard supports exchanges of property, lease and tenant information between property owners. It is intended to reduce the impact a sale/purchase of a property has on portfolio management - both from a physical and financial perspective.
MISSION: To enable the automated provision of inputs required to measure performance of investments in commercial real estate by ensuring global consistency in data definitions.
Currently the process of aggregation and reconciliation of data manual, time consuming and expensive. Additionally many Asset Managers are required to send what is essentially the same data to multiple benchmarking organisations in a variety of different formats, which is and unnecessary overhead.
Reduced costs by removing the efforts involved in manual reconciliation and managing multiple formats.Increased speed of processes by reducing the time taken to transfer data between property systems.Improved accuracy and increased quality by reducing errors arising from manual interventionSignificant increase in the quantity of data that can be practically transferred in a short timeframe.

UK Lease Delivery Version 3.0 is now available as an OSCRE Standard.
Although this Standard has been developed and tested for the UK, we would also like to gather information about adaptations that would enable its use in other locations. We are particularly keen to hear from users of the Lease Abstract in North America. We will plan a Harmonization review on the basis of the feedback we receive.

OSCRE Workgroup Members are pleased to announce publication of the Occupancy Cost Exchange Standard V3. This enhanced version will enable the provision of inputs, required to share the cost of occupancy when exchanging data to multiple parties by ensuring global consistency in data definitions. Adhering to the standard will increase data accuracy and its quality which ultimately leads to an increased ease of reporting to the stakeholders.

RPUID is a persistent, universal ID for land, buildings & structures for the purpose of linking the asset to all of the related assets, records, transactions and analysis from earliest conception onward.
Workgroup is preparing the Workgroup Draft version of the business specification. OSCRE is seeking organizations to discuss and prototype the RPUID Registrar function. Interested organizations are invited to contact OSCRE
RPUID is conceived to be a non-mnemonic, totally generic, alphanumeric code which is used for the purpose of linking the asset to all of the related assets, records, transactions and analysis from earliest conception onward throughout its useful life and beyond for as long as it is useful. Real property assets believed to require a RPUID are Land parcels, Buildings, Sub-buildings (like condos which are legal subsets), Structures and Linear assets (like utility lines, parking and roadways). It is conceived that RPUIDs would be assigned on request by a Registrar which would also maintain a registry of assigned IDs and fundamental identifying information.
The RPUID Workgroup is developing an exchange standard for information presumed to be required for business processes related to Registration requesting, validation, dispute resolution and notifications for land parcels, buildings and structures.
England & Wales
The overall scope of the Searches Standard is to address all the data exchanges required to order and fulfil all searches involved in residential property transactions.
