BS 8888 Technical Product Documentation (TPD)
Specification for defining, specifying and graphically representing products.
Note: The current edition is BS 8888:2011
This British Standard supersedes BS308-1:1993, BS308-2:1985 and BS308-3:1990, which are all withdrawn. Drawing conventions which applied to BS 308-1'2'3 in general
also apply to the European Standards referenced in BS 8888.
An important difference between BS 308 and BS 8888 is in the marking of
the decimal place. In BS308 the decimal place is indicated with a
decimal point. In BS 8888 the decimal place is indicated with a comma
with each group of three digits from the decimal provided with a space e.g. 14 234,012 8 .
