BSI is appointed by the UK Government as the National Standards Body and represents UK interests at the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the European Standards Organizations (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI). At home our role is to help improve the quality and safety of products, services and systems by enabling the creation of standards and encouraging their use. Standards play a crucial role in innovation by de-risking investment and accelerating the adoption of new technologies through confidence in performance. BSI is at the global forefront of standardization in areas with the potential to transform the economy and our society. Standards are critical in the commercialisation of new technologies, building trust and supporting the creation of new markets at home and internationally. Standards support the consolidation of emerging supply chains, prevent the risk of technology lock-in, and help disseminate knowledge from large-scale R&D demonstrators and test beds.

  • improve performance
  • cut costs
  • manage and reduce risk
