Builders HaBritish Standards Institution (BSI)

Established in 1901 by the Engineering Standards Committee in London, the British Standards Institution (BSI) has emerged as a global leader in national standards. Originally known as the Engineering Standards Committee from 1901 to 1918, then to British Engineering Standards Association from 1918 to 1931. It became the British Standards Institution in 1931 after receiving a Royal Charter in 1929. The Charter was revised in 1998, allowing for diversification and acquisition of other businesses, prompting a trading name change to BSI Group.

BSI’s mission is to help clients in adopting safer, more secure, and sustainable practices. Operating under a Royal Charter, the BSI upholds impartiality and embodies the epitome of trust with its renowned Kitemark certification.

The organization is the producer of British Standards and serves as the UK’s National Standards Body. Its responsibilities include publishing international and European standards in English. BSI is obligated to adopt and publish all European Standards as identical British Standards (prefixed BS EN) while also withdrawing any conflicting pre-existing British Standards. Additionally, BSI has the flexibility to adopt and publish international standards (prefixed BS ISO or BS IEC).

BSI also develops custom standards products, including Publicly Available Specifications (PASs), Private Standards, and Business Information Publications. These products are commissioned by individual organizations and trade associations to fulfill their specific needs for standardized specifications, guidelines, codes of practice, and more. Unlike formal standards, they are not subject to the same consultation and consensus requirements, resulting in a shorter lead time.

Today, the group operates in 195 countries, focusing on its core business of providing standards and related services encompassing different sectors such as healthcare, mining and minerals, manufacturing, and public sectors, among others.
