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can be sure that you will always have access to the latest standards, ensuring you are never caught out working with an outdated document.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...

Search by Standard status

It’s important to know whether you are working with the latest standard, or whether it is being revised, or withdrawn.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.

Search by publisher

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.

Search by publication date

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.

Search by update type

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.

Granular Search

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.

  • Search by status
  • Search by date
  • Search by publisher
  • Search by update type

"Everyone should use standards…standards provide a baseline for quality control – a strong and secure foundation on which the business can grow"

Martin Lockton, Regulatory Affairs at Specsavers

"One advantage of the BSOL website is that you can discover things that you didn’t know were available"

Graeme Williams, Ceng Team Leader Gearbox Design, Mercedes GP Petronas

"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."

Craig Asbridge, Engineering Manager, Pulse Home Products
