How to get involved with standards

BSI actively seeks to bring together all those with significant interest in particular projects.

Representations are sought from many spheres including: consumer organizations; professional institutions; certification, testing and inspection bodies; educational establishments; research organizations; UK notified bodies; enforcement bodies and government departments.

BSI also works with trade associations or equivalent organizations as a means of representing most standards users in business. This enables a wide measure of consultation and support in standards work.

All participation is on a voluntary basis, and there are a number of different ways that you can be involved in helping to develop standards:

Developing a bespoke standard for your business

Improve your internal processes by working with us to develop your own standard. 

Developing a PAS to meet immediate market need

If you’re looking to develop a standard that fulfils an immediate market need, then work with us and sponsor the development of a PAS. 

Stakeholder forums

We run a number of stakeholder forums throughout the year, which aim to gather the thoughts and opinions on the need to develop new standards. These forums are open to anyone with an interest or knowledge in the subject matter and are free to attend.

Standards Development Portal

Our new and improved Standards Development Portal is now here. You can use the new Portal to discover and comment on standards in development, track their progress and find out which trade associations and professional bodies are represented on BSI committees. You can also browse a list of committees by sector or industry, or by key word search.
