Standards Setting at BSI
The British Standards Institution is the primary UK national standards body and it also represents UK interests in the areas of international and European standardization. I am a member of two BSI technical committees, one concerned with audio and video recording, and the other with magnetic recording for instrumentation applications. Most of the activity relevant to AES members comes under the aegis of BSI Technical Committee EEL/32, Equipment and Systems In The Field Of Audio, Video and Audio-visual Engineering. My own field, recording, is handled by another committee designated EEL/22. Sadly, little work in the overall field of electronics leading to new standards now occurs in the UK. The only developments of new tape recording formats now taking place in Britain are for military applications, and there are very few of these. However, both EEL/22 and EEL/32 are kept very busy as we participate very actively in international work.
