Developing a UK Standards Strategy for the Uptake of Light-weight Materials by the Transport Industry
The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, BEIS, has funded BSI to investigate where standards and standards related activity could help enable the uptake of light-weight materials, namely composites, in the transport industry.
Standards development and their adoption are considered to be key in building confidence and overcoming some of the barriers industry faces and we have made key recommendations for standards development to support the uptake of composite materials in the automotive, aerospace, rail and marine industry.

Composites Leadership Forum (CLF)
Identifying what industry needs to help support the uptake of composites as alternatives to heavier, traditional materials will deliver significant economic benefits to UK industry. BSI, as a member of the Composites Leadership Forum (CLF), is looking to identify how standards can help designers and specifiers consider composites as a serious proposition and where standards can help create new supply chains or improve existing supply chains.
