British Standards are simply ways of doing or making something that is agreed to be the best way of doing it. Or to put another way, a standards practise. These standard practises can be applied to manufacturing or testing a product, managing a process, or delivering a service.
The British Standards Catelogue extends to more than 30,000 currentBritish Sandards. Most are for voluntary use, so it is up to you to follow the standard and work better. British Standards are tools. They share knowledge and expertise that can help drive, innovate and improve. Every day, The BSI and British Standards are helping organisations increase productivity and be more successful. The aim is to make everyone's lives easier, safer and healthier.
