The GAI Guides to Standards are member-only documents relating to the British and European Standards with specific relevance to the architectural ironmongery industry.

These documents provide background and detail on the relevant products, information on the specific standards, and whether these standards are harmonised or designated standards. The initial Introduction to Standards document also provides a detailed overview of current standards, how they work, and how they should be identified and applied.

These documents are available to GAI corporate members and employees only. Please sign in to access the downloads, or click to read more about GAI membership.
