British Standards Institution

BSI British Standards is the UKs national standards organization that produces standards and information products that promote and share best practice.

The BSI was founded in 1901 and subsequently received a Royal Charter which meant that it became the recognised national body responsible for the development and agreement of standards. This was done in response to the demand from buyers that products would meet defined specifications and performance measures.

It serves the interests of a wide range of industry sectors as well as governments, consumers, employees and society overall, to make sure that British, European and international standards are useful, relevant and authoritative. The BSI represents the UK's interests in international and European standards organizations such as ISO, IEC, CEN, CENELEC and ETSI.

Standards are available online for pdf download or next day/standard delivery, either as a printed publication/CD-ROM depending on the product selected. The option to download ISO or BS standards enables you to get access to important standards documents without delay.
