The BSI C++ panel, more formally known as IST/5/-/21, is responsible for the UK standardisation process for C++. Much of this work involves interaction with SC22/WG21 the ISO working group for C++.

The BSI interests are represented at the formal meetings of SC22/WG21 by a small delegation, usually consisting of two or three members of the BSI panel.

One member of the delegation is the "Principal UK Expert", or "PUKE" (!), and votes for the UK in any formal motions.

Meeting Schedule

A lot of work is done electronically though a members-only yahoo group and there also are a number of face to face meetings held each year; although a combination of geography and other commitments means that only a minority of members are able to attend these.

The BSI C++ panel meeting dates for 2012 are:

  • Mon 30 Jan
  • Mon 19 Mar
  • Mon 28 May
  • Mon 10 Sep
  • Mon 12 Nov
  • Mon 03 Dec

(or via Google Calendar.) (All at the BSI: 389 Chiswick High Road, London, W4 4AL)


The BSI C++ panel consists of a number of people, not all resident in the UK, who share a common interest in C++ and a desire to help with standardising the language as it continues to develop.

Membership of the BSI C++ Committee is voluntary. There is no payment for membership nor charges for joining.
