BSOL is an online library which manages all your standards in one place. You can be sure that you will always have access to the latest standards, ensuring you are never caught out working with an outdated document. Other features include...
It’s important to know whether you are working with the latest standard, or whether it is being revised, or withdrawn. BSOL allows you to search on the standard status. Simply select from the available options the status you are looking for.
It’s vital that you work with the correct standard, in particular, if it has been adapted for certain markets or situations. BSOL allows you to search by publisher, which are mostly different standards bodies around the world.
Standards have been published by BSI for over 115 years. As BSOL holds over 100,000 standards, and the earliest dates back to 1903, you can narrow your search results by setting the dates you want to search in.
When standards are updated, they receive an update type, for example, New, Amended, or Reinstated. This update can be different from the document status, and BSOL enables you to specify exactly the update type you are searching for.
Search by status, date, publisher or by update type - however you want to perform your search, BSOL has all the flexibility you need. You can limit your search to standards in your collection, or search across all standards to see what else you could add.
Granular control to find what you need.
Access the documents you need as quickly as possible. BSOL’s search functionality includes autocomplete, which suggests search results based on the characters you are typing before you hit “search”.
Find what you're looking for. Fast.
Once you have found the standard you’re looking for, BSOL places the most important information relating to the standard in an easy to view layout. You can verify the standard title, status and any standards it replaces. You can then delve deeper into related standards if you need using the drop down sections. Quickly view the standard, add to your favourites, or set-up an email alert from the Quick actions section.

"In the past we’d buy one paper copy of the standard and hold that in our evaluation lab and we’d often be scrambling around looking for it. Now we don’t have any of that, it’s just one minute to find it, download it, and it’s there on your desktop."
