BSI and Codes of Practice

The traditional role of the British Standards Institution in coordinating the production of specifications defining the attributes of materials or products is readily understood. Its role in the preparation of Codes of Practice is perhaps not so clear. Certainly, it is not BSI’s intention to prepare ‘textbooks’ of good practice, although some Codes have attracted that criticism; nor is it intended that Codes should be regarded as sets of rules that demand strict adherence in all circumstances.
