The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020 and entered a transition period until the end of 2020. During this phase, the UK and the EU are negotiating a future trade agreement. For now it’s business as usual for BSI. As the situation develops and discussions with the UK government and other relevant bodies progress, these pages will keep you updated on the latest information regarding BSI’s position.

BSI Statement

Following the official announcement on Friday 31 January 2020 that the UK has officially ceased to be a member of the European Union, BSI will continue to help organizations achieve their goals as we have done for the past 119 years.

The UK has now entered a transition period in which it will negotiate future business and trade agreements with the EU. For BSI it is business as usual, BSI will remain a full member and influential participant in the single European Standards system as well as an EU Notified Body. BSI will continue to play an important role in helping both British and overseas firms demonstrate product conformity.

As negotiations progress and our discussions with the UK government and other relevant authorities evolve, we will continue to keep you informed on progress on both this page and other communications.
