When does my Membership start?

Your Membership will be active as soon as we have processed your payment and set up your contract. Once this has been done you will receive notification by email and receive your Membership account number. Your Membership certificate will be sent through the post within a week of signing up. Membership runs from the first of the month that you sign up in. 

I’m ISO 9001 certified. Does this mean I’m a Member of BSI?

No. Certification (sometimes referred to as registration) and Membership are different. Membership grants no award or status to a company, but is a benefits package available to all companies, organizations and individuals for an annual fee.

Is BSS Membership the same as BSI Membership?

No. BSS is the UK standards users' society which is administered by BSI. Joining BSS will help you to keep up-to-date with standards developments and implementation and also benefit from the guidance, support and practical experience of others in the application of standards. Find out more about BSS.

Can I use the BSI logo when I become a Member?

No, as a BSI Member you cannot use the BSI logo. However you can promote your BSI Membership on your website in plain text. You can also include a copy of your Membership certificate on your website or display it in your office.

Can I download a standard immediately and pay later?

Yes, if you register you’re able to login and use our online credit facility. You’ll be sent an invoice later.

Can I visit BSI to look at standards?

Yes. BSI Subscribing Members can look at standards in the BSI Members' Reading Room at our head office in London for free. There's a £20 per hour charge for all other non-Members. We need at least 48 hours' notice for visits so that we can arrange any materials needed for study and to contact security for car park access. BSI committee members, journalists and students with proof of student status can also look at standards free of charge.
