The display of a British Standard number (eg: BS 1234), on for instance a consumer product, shows that the manufacturer claims to have made the product in accordance with the British Standard.
Sometimes BS will be accompanied by the letters EN and/or ISO. These mean that the standard was developed as a European (EN) or International (ISO) standard and then adopted by the UK as a British Standard.
