Upcoming event – Measuring trustworthiness in AI: Approaches and considerations from a metrology perspective

 Standards for trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI) can help organisations—including those who want to develop, design, deploy, procure, and use AI services— to facilitate the safe and secure development and adoption of AI technologies. In this webinar we will share some of our thinking and current work of the UK’s National Metrology (Measurement) Laboratory on how to attain trustworthiness in AI systems.

Upcoming event – Introducing BS 30440: Validation framework for the use of AI in healthcare

BS 30440 Validation Framework for the Use of AI in Healthcare is a standard that has been developed to guide the evaluation of AI systems used in the healthcare sector. This webinar will provide an overview on how the standard came to be, why it is needed, what it covers, and what the benefits of using it are.

Explore the “Standards at a glance”

The AI Standards Hub aims to build a vibrant and diverse community around AI standards.

If you have limited prior experience with standardisation, our “Standards at a glance” may help you become familiar with the nature of standards and the concepts and processes underpinning their development and use.

We will be expanding this section over the coming weeks, so check back for updated content.

Search AI standards that are “open for comment”


When a proposed standard is “open for comment”, you can review the proposal and leave comments during a public consultation period. The Hub website tracks when standards are in this phase.


The four pillars of
the AI Standards Hub

The AI Standards Hub’s work is structured around four pillars. These are reflected in the various features on the Hub’s interactive online platform, as well as the Hub’s programme of live and in-person activities.

4 icons referencing the four pillars of the AI Standards Hub, as described in the text, next to the AI Standards Hub logo

Pillar 1: Observatory

Search through a filterable catalogue of nearly 300 relevant standards. Search through legislation, government strategies, and other key documents.

Pillar 2: Community and collaboration

Connect with other community members and discuss AI standardisation topics, challenges, and priorities, both online and in person.

Pillar 3: Knowledge and training

Learn about standardisation and AI best practices through online learning materials and live events.

Pillar 4: Research and analysis

Discover cutting-edge research published by the AI Standards Hub, and access relevant insights from the wider AI standards world. 

Trustworthy AI

As the Hub’s initial focus, activities in the coming months will be centred around the thematic area of Trustworthy AI. This will include deep dives on the topics of (i) transparency and explainability, (ii) safety, security & resilience, and (iii) uncertainty quantification.

Discuss Trustworthy AI topics

With an AI Standards Hub user account, you can contribute to our discussion forums, one of the many interactive features that the AI Standards Hub online platform has to offer.

Visit our forums to participate in existing threads related to Trustworthy AI, or suggest new discussion topics. 

Read the introduction to the Hub’s work programme on trustworthy AI


As the Hub’s work on Trustworthy AI evolves, we will publish accompanying blog posts. This introductory post explains the role that horizontal and vertical thematic areas will play in the Hub’s strategy, sets out the background for Trustworthy AI as an initial horizontal thematic area, and provides a preview of the Hub’s forthcoming programme of activities in this area.

Watch the Hub’s Trustworthy AI kick-off

The AI Standards Hub launch event featured an introduction to the Hub’s programme of work on Trustworthy AI and a multi-stakeholder panel discussion examining priorities, challenges and opportunities in this context.
