British Standards mark

The BSI Kitemark originated as the British Standards Mark in 1903 for use on tramway rails when standardization reduced the number of rail sizes from 75 to five. Today the BSI Kitemark can be seen on hundreds of products from manhole covers to condoms, from security locks to fire extinguishers and riding helmets.

Manufacturers with the BSI Kitemark are an elite club of some of world's best companies and brands. There are currently more than 2,500 BSI Kitemark licences, held by, amongst others, Anglian Home Improvements, Chubb Security & Fire Protection, Everest, Hygena, Tarmac and Valor, to name but a few.  

Trust the BSI Kitemark™

Having a BSI Kitemark associated with a product or service confirms that it conforms to a particular standard. BSI has developed a whole range of BSI Kitemark schemes that cover a variety of products and consumer services, including window installation, garage services, furniture removals and electrical installation work.

Assessment of compliance

Each BSI Kitemark scheme involves an initial assessment of compliance to the relevant standard and an assessment of the quality management system operated by the supplier. In addition, each BSI Kitemark Licensee is subject to a program of ongoing surveillance. This includes routine testing of the product or service, assessment of production quality controls and, where appropriate, mystery shopping.
