BSI Standards Awards

Nominations for the BSI Standards Awards 2018 are now open


About the Awards

The BSI Standards Awards are the most prestigious awards BSI gives to standards-makers and were created to recognize outstanding contributions by emerging standards-makers, international standards-makers, innovators, consumer champions, industry leaders and committee chairs and secretaries. In addition, with the special Wolfe Barry Medal, BSI recognizes exceptional commitment and contribution to standards-making by an individual. Through their services to standards-making, all the winners are helping their sectors to develop and grow, and helping to safeguard consumers.
