The International Cost Engineering Council has compiled a listing of best practices and standards which have been developed in many countries for the practice of cost engineering, project management, and quantity surveying.
Included are documents developed by the member associations of ICEC plus many independent standards organizations.
The lists includes standards from the Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, United Kingdom, United States,and South Africa plus standards and best practices developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Project Management Organization (IPMA) and the Commission Electrotechnique Internationale (IEC).

ICEC is developing an international cost model / location factor product. Two standard model designs with quantities are developed; one for a commercial building and one for a process plant. To simplify the effort, the models are greatly simplified proxies for a full design. The information comes from ICEC members who estimate the cost of these simple model facilities (one page) using local costs, productivities, allowances, and so on within given estimate basis assumptions and guidelines. The goal is to have preliminary results ready at the next ICEC International Congress.
