Welcome to BSOL Academic

BSOL Academic is a key resource for all your institution’s departments. It includes over 90,000 standards across 53 subject modules covering all disciplines from management, law, finance and technology to food, transport, energy, textiles, sciences and healthcare.

BSOL Standards


Developed by BSI, the world’s first and oldest National Standards Body, this unique resource offers a quality of information that is second to none. As well as standards developed by BSI, BSOL Academic includes standards from leading European and international standards development organisations including ISO, ASTM, CEN, CENELEC and IEC. All the most widely adopted standards are included alongside documents specific to individual countries and industries to help students compare and contrast information.

A World Built on Standards

This publication is the result of work carried out by BSI, Danish Standards, the National Standards Authority of Ireland, the Finnish Standards Association and the University of Zagreb under the auspices of the CEN and CENELEC Joint Working Group for education and standardization. 

'A World Built on Standards' is supported my multiple choice questions and case studies on how others have taught about standards and standardization.
