Standardization in the field of Service Life Planning and Design Life of buildings and constructed assets during the period for which they are intended to remain functional and meet their designed performance requirements".

Note: Service life planning for buildings involves the strategic and systematic consideration of a building's life cycle, encompassing its design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and eventual disposal or reuse.

This is to ensure an adequate level of performance of the building, or constructed asset, be resilient to the effects of climate change, and that will maintain its value over its lifespan, whilst minimizing its environmental impact.
