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.

Please note that nominations for the BSI Standards Awards 2018 will open in spring 2018.
