Join the British Standards Society

The British Standards Society (BSS) is the UK standard users’ organisation.

Joining BSS will help you to keep up to date with standards development and implementation, and you can also benefit from guidance, support and practical experience of others in the application of standards. BSS feeds back users' views to BSI and operates via an online forum.

Benefits include a network of contacts across a wide range of industrial, commercial, educational and public sector interests, and the opportunity of gaining practical advice and guidance on standards application.
