BS 8888:2017 has now been published, and can be ordered from BSI.
The new version has been reorganized to present the material in a more logical way, it has been extended in many areas, and is around 50% larger than the previous revision. The use of 3D CAD is much more directly addressed in the standard, and useful guidance has been provided in many areas.
This is the best version of BS 8888 to have been published so far, and big thanks are due to all the members of technical committee TDW/4/8 for their hard work and contributions to this standard.
Work will begin later this year on the next revision, with a view to bringing in further improvements. The next revision will probably be published around 2020.« back
