The BSI are the national standards organization for the UK and an influential member of the ISO. The main objective of the BSI is to publish and proliferate standards and standardisation both domestically and internationally.
British Standards Institute
The BSI was established in London in 1901 as the Engineering Standards Committee, and it was not until some thirty years after its formation that the BSI was granted a Royal Charter and assumed its present name the British Standards Institution. Now, as the BSI, the institution operates globally, and the standards it publishes are regarded as some of the world’s finest examples of standardisation.

Standard means "something that is generally accepted". A British Standard
Publication is a document that has been produced by the BSI as a technical
specification or practice to be used as a guideline for the standard
production of a product, or the carrying out of a process, such as testing
or providing a service.
