This British Standard specifies requirements for the preparation of all forms of technical product specification. The requirements cross-refer substantially to International and European Standards which have been implemented as British Standards either in the BS ISO, BS EN, BS EN ISO series or as International Standards re-numbered as British Standards. The requirements are supplemented by commentary and recommendations on technical matters that are considered to be of assistance to users of this standard in the UK and which do not conflict with published International Standards in this field.
Annex A and Annex B list cross-referenced standards and other documents, normative and informative respectively, by primary reference, indicating the Standards Kit (see Note) in which they can be found. Annex C (normative) provides a list of standard symbols and abbreviations. Annex D (normative) sets out requirements for enhanced document security and Annex E (normative) identifies the main differences in approach between the provisions of this standard and those of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Y14.5 series. Annex F (informative) provides a summary report on the concepts that have underwritten the development of technical product specification (TPS) and its primary constituent, geometrical specification, to date and discusses some of the drivers for future change.
NOTE This British Standard is available in CD-ROM format, in which form it is accompanied by the full range of cross-referenced standards, all hyperlinked to the relevant reference(s) within the text of the primary standard. When used in paper form, it is necessary that this standard be used in conjunction with the relevant cross-referenced standards. To facilitate this, four Standards Kits are available under the general heading BS 8888, Technical Product Specification, with each kit comprised of a group of the cross-referenced standards relating to a particular aspect of the scope of BS 8888.
