The first draft of a revision to the 1998 version of UniFormat has been released for public comment. The UniFormat Task Team will consider all comments received before June 15, 2008, says the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI).  

A revised version of UniFormat is planned for the end of 2008. This revision will be coordinated with MasterFormat 2004, but will only cover building construction topics. The following year, the task team will work to expand UniFormat subject matter to cover all types of construction, says CSI.

UniFormat provides a uniform classification system for organizing construction information into a standard order, based around functional elements. Using UniFormat can also provide consistent comparable data across an entire building life cycle, says CSI.
