Innovation is the lifeblood of the economy. New products, processes and services are continually coming onto the market. Innovative product developers are continually researching and developing new ideas. However, they need a framework in which to operate so that manufacturers know that their products will meet the requirements of local and global markets.
Standards are important in developing new ideas. They are just as important in maintaining smooth running systems for manufacturing products and in providing services to customers.
BSI can support every stage of the process. It creates standards, provides advice, supports research, all of which enables testing and certification.
