British Standards Institution (BSI)

an organization which produces national standards for products and processes at the request of particular industries. The BSI generally seeks to produce national standards which are consistent with the international standards established by the International Standardization Organization (ISO). In designing products and processes firms must generally meet the QUALITY, performance and safety standards laid down by the BSI if their products are to be acceptable to consumers. Products which meet these specifications are entitled to bear the BSI's ‘kite’ mark. See BS5750.
