British Standards

Approved contractors are required to conform with the British standards relevant to the security sector.

The standards are prepared by industry experts and represent good practice in each field. If you do not have the latest versions of these standards you can purchase them from the British Standards Institution (BSI).

30% Discount Available

BSI has agreed to supply the required British standards at 30% below the catalogue price. This can mean a saving of £30 to £50 for each standard you buy.

To obtain this discount you must order the standards directly from BSI distributor sales using the form below:

BSI will dispatch hardcopy versions of the standards you order to your business address. No VAT is payable and postage and packing is included.

You will be purchasing your standards from BSI, not us. Please refer any problems with your order to BSI using the contact details on the order form.

We have negotiated this arrangement with BSI to help reduce the costs of regulation. We do not profit financially from any order you place for British standards.

Other Standards

BSI may also supply other standards at 30% discount, at its discretion. Standards you may wish to purchase include the codes of practice that relate to use of security dogs (BS817-1 and BS8517-2) and the international standard for complaints handling (BS ISO 10002:2004 Quality management).

50% Discount for BSI Members

BSI members receive 50% discount on purchases of all standards as well as other benefits. Please see the BSI website for more details.
