Well, looking at the current pricing of these documents, I'm absolutely shocked or should that be singed at the cost.

5839 - 1 the basics - £254
5839 - 6 dwellings - £210

Once you've read through that lot and need clarification

then you will need 6531 - questions and queries £210

and that's not all since i think they are under review to be republished.

Now back to OMS' avatar - I think you're a month early

Hi

Are you looking for paper copies of the BSS - or would a (non-printable) online copy serve your needs?

Many libraries allow their members to have online access, via their home computer, to British Standards Online, where you can view the text of almost all current and many withdrawn BSS (I say 'almost' as BS7671 is one of the standards to which access is not allowed !)
For example, Manchester Public Libraries don't restrict membership to locals and allow anyone in the UK to join without any charge, via a simple online application ( www.manchester.gov.uk/info/500134/using_the_library/78/join_the_library )

The arrangement works well enough for my needs, once you have worked out how to navigate the library online services site (Before you tear out your hair, British Standards Online is reached via their 'Business and Innovation' section).

Although printing and 'cut and paste copying' is disabled, most screen capture programmes allow you to avoid the need to copy out particular paragraphs with pen and paper!

Regards

Lol, I once met a Welshman who showed me a nice little picture of a Welsh Dragon savaging a British Bulldog.......

My thoughts were along the lines of...I know that the Bulldog exists but I'm not too sure about the credibility of this big firery Dragon.

Although, the Welsh do make fine poets and their greatest export appears to be teachers

Ohhh - they exist all right, take a look through a blast furnace door some day - they live in there.

Not everyone can see them though - only the chosen ones

Everything we export is great Legh - from water for the brummies to slates for london roofs. You've got to have a soul for poetry you see - something you heathens don't have -

Right, I'm away to eat leeks and march on london with the daffodil army
