British Standards Institution - www.bsi-global.com/index.xalter

The UK national standards body. Although government funded, the institution is independent. The BSI interprets international technical standards for the UK, and also sets its own. For consumer goods, it sets standards that products should reach (the BS standard), as well as testing products to see that they conform to that standard (as a result of which the product may be given the BSI kite mark).
