Developing new standards

New standards get developed when people realize that there’s a need for one. A new type of product might need standardizing, an industrial process might need regulating to protect workers or consumers, or a business might simply decide it wants to create its own private standard to standardize its own processes.

There are three principal routes to developing a standard, depending on which type needs developing: British Standard, PAS or bespoke standard.


Get involved in developing a British Standard

If you’re a manufacturer, a consumer, an academic or a regulator with an interest in a particular area, join one of our committees and help develop British Standards. 


Developing a PAS to meet immediate market need

If you’re looking to develop a standard that fulfils an immediate market need, then work with us and sponsor the development of a PAS. 


Developing a bespoke standard for your business

Improve your internal processes by working with us to develop your own standard.
