Role of Standardisation in support of Emerging Technologies

This review of international approaches to standards development in support of emerging technologies has been commissioned by the UK Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and by the British Standards Institution (BSI). It builds on previous research carried out by the Institute for Manufacturing, especially in the context of the EPSRC/IMRC funded Emerging Industries Programme, and is intended to present findings and observations of direct interest, relevance and utility to BIS and BSI.
