How do I open British Standards PDF documents?




There are different ways to view documents from British Standards Online (BSOL). Although documents can be accessed in different ways, the content remains the same.

To read documents online click on the Quick View PDF icon. This is currently the only way to view BSOL documents on campus.

  1. Click on Download PDF. 
  2. Find the downloaded file in your devices Downloads folder.
  3. On the file, right click, select Open With and select Adobe Acrobat Reader.
