15 Standards, Codes And Miscellaneous Data

British & European Standards & Codes of Practice

Some of the BS ENs listed below were still to be published at the time of writing this guide. On publication these BS ENs will often completely or partially replace a British Standard, which will then be withdrawn or revised as appropriate. The exact title and possibly the number of parts may vary slightly when new BS ENs are actually published.

Users are advised to check the current status of these documents before using them. BSI have an excellent web site where on line checks can instantly be made.
