About BSI

BSI is the business standards company that helps organizations all over the world make excellence a habit. For more than a century we have been challenging mediocrity and complacency to help embed excellence into the way people and products work. That means showing businesses how to improve performance, reduce risk and achieve sustainable growth. As a global leader in helping organizations improve, our clients range from high profile brands to small, local companies in 150 countries worldwide.


Our global strength is built on the experience, skills and sheer enthusiasm of our tutors, client managers and senior business leaders. And they all understand how to make excellence a habit.

In 150 countries, at more than 90,000 sites, we work with thousands of organizations, from the world's largest and most successful brands to local small businesses. Read their stories and find out how you too can benefit.


Our role as the UK National Standards Body reaches across the international standards community. You can get involved by helping to develop standards relevant to your industry, commenting on draft standards or becoming a consumer representative.

We were awarded our Royal Charter in 1929. It sets out what we do and why we do it – allowing us to be transparent about our purpose. 


We have been assessed against internationally recognized standards and operate to the highest levels of quality and service. We are accredited by 20 local and international bodies.

We were there at the birth of the standards movement and have helped shape it ever since, driving businesses globally to perform to the best of their ability.
