BSITwelve months ago, SPATA publicised the excellent service that its members were able to benefit from, having access to 25 standards as part of British Standards Online (BSOL). Following positive feedback from members, the SPATA National Council has extended the BSOL service for a second year!


Due to the size and strength of the Trade Association (thanks to its members), SPATA can offer these European standards as an online package at a fabulous price of £75 + VAT per year. Considering that most of the twenty-five standards that have been made available cost at least £100 each to buy (in paper or pdf format) this is a fantastic offer!

Members can still purchase a discounted paper copy of most British and European standards (20% discount) via the SPATA office if members would still find it useful to have a particular copy for office use.  For companies that are not currently SPATA members, the SPATA office can provide a full list of the 25 standards available and details of how to become a member to take advantage of these great offers.
