“Expert consultations” – terms of use

„Expert consultations” – terms of use

„Expert consultations” is a service that makes standards more accessible to businesses and organizations that do not have specialists in a standardization area, and those who already use standards will be able to get answers to their standards related questions.

What is the service for?

Through the „Expert consultations” service you could have expert advice and guidance on issues related to the implementation of existing national and European and international standards implemented as BDS.

Competent experts from BDS administration and Technical Committees will be engaged with your case studies. We have qualified specialists in over 70% of the standardization areas.

Why to use the service?

The economic situation in the country, the competition and the shortage of qualified staff, place business entrepreneurs in front of numerous challenges. Time and resources are insufficient, and users demand products and services of the highest quality. And despite the unlimited access to information, we cannot have knowledge in everything, and it is not necessary. We only need to make the most of the expert’s knowledge. Using consulting services is the most cost-effective way to get expert advice without having to waste time and money on recruiting and hiring specialists that you do not have. But a good manager knows that by proper planning and organizing of priorities, resources and time, the goals could be achieved and the competition overtaken.

BDS activities include the development, approval and publishing of standards. And the experts involved in these processes can engage with authoritative opinions on the implementation of the standards.

The „Expert consultations” service gives you the assurance that you have chosen the right way.
