Maintenance will be taking place for BSI Shop on Wednesday 22nd of November between 17:00 - 23:00 UK time. BSI Shop will be unavailable during this time. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused during this essential maintenance work.

Geotechnical investigation and testing

BSI’s geotechnical investigation and testing standards establish the basic principles for the identification and classification of soils and rock. They should be used to assess the suitability of a site for geotechnical engineering purposes (such as foundations, ground improvements, roads, embankments, dams and drainage systems).
