Standards and British Standards are simply an agreed way of doing things. They could be about manufacturing products, managing processes, delivering services or materials, and can cover a huge range of activities. Standards represent the condensed knowledge of a group of people who have a huge amount of experience or expertise regarding a given subject. For example sellers, buyers, users or regulators. There are in excess of 40,000 current British Standards, all of which are voluntarily written to help you work more efficiently and to higher standards.
For businesses, British and ISO Standards are a medium through which productivity and development can be improved. They give an awareness which will enable your organisation to be successful, safer and more sustainable. Standards cover a wide range of subjects and themes, from cricket balls to nanotechnology. By using British Standards expectations are shared leading to better working practises and increased efficiency.
