Our members

There are many ways to get involved with our work around standards. You can join our global community and work with us to set and raise standards. You can also sign up to benefit from using these standards at discounted prices. That’s because we have committee members and Subscribing members – and both are incredibly valuable to our business. Here’s why. 

Committee members

We work with 9,000 committee members whose expertise helps us to shape best practice codes and standards – now and for the future.

These experts are leaders in their chosen field. They are committed to delivering the best in standards and promoting the UK voice across the international and European standards communities.

Our committee members provide the link between stakeholder interests and our work. This means they play a vitally important role in allowing us to provide you with robust standards and the best possible service as a standards body.

There are currently more than a thousand committees who meet throughout the year. Committee members work on a voluntary basis and provide feedback on the relevance of standards within the marketplace. By sharing this on-the-ground knowledge, our committee members allow us to deliver exactly the standards you need. 

This support is two-way: each committee member receives free training on the way standards processes and bodies operate. They can also network extensively with like-minded individuals.

Do you want to lead and influence industry discussion on standards? Then find out how to become a committee member.

Subscribing members

You can make a statement with Subscribing membership. You can show your customers, competitors and stakeholders that you take standards seriously. Signing up to a BSI subscription membership demonstrates that you’re committing to improving your organization’s performance and making excellence a habit. You’ll also be invited to attend our AGM – some members are asked to participate.

There are also many other benefits. These include half price British Standards and BSI conference tickets. You’ll also get discounts on international standards. Subscribing members also enjoy access to our Knowledge Centre, where you can find out all you need to know about specific standards – helping you to choose exactly the right standards for your organization.
