The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is responsible for UK government policy on standardization and BSI receives funding from BEIS in respect of its role as the UK NSB. Recognizing the importance of the work we do and that some aspects are not self-funding, BEIS fund specific activity in three main areas:
- Influence and Leadership – helping to support the infrastructure necessary for the UK to participate in international standardization and giving Her Majesty’s Government (HMG) access to standards
- Standards Development – covering activities relating to developing standards content
- Participation in Standardization – enabling UK participants in international standards work by contributing towards their travel costs
Each year, we produce a report which covers in detail how this money is spent. Download BSI's annual report to the UK Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on the use of BEIS funding.
