The ISO 19650 Framework equivalent is the BS EN ISO 19650‑1:2018

’The levels of information need should be determined by the minimum amount of information needed to answer each relevant requirement, including information required by other appointed parties, and no more.

Anything beyond this minimum is considered as waste’… BS EN ISO 19650‑1:2018 p. 23 clause 11.2

This is also further supported by the BS ISO 31000:2018 statement that better decisions result in better outcomes. Meaning that effective information management necessitates that the right people have the right information at the right time and for the right purpose to make better decisions[1]
