This document, designated FITNET MK8, is now out of print. It was effectively an advanced draft of a document that was originally intended to become a CEN publication, but for various reasons did not ultimately make that journey.
Subsequently, and with the full co-operation of the FITNET consortium, the UK committee that develops and maintains BS 7910 agreed to incorporate many aspects of the FITNET document into a new edition of BS 7910, which was first issued in 2013 and has since been subjected to an Amendment and Corrigenda:
BS 7910 covers concepts very similar to those of FITNET; although it is notionally a British Standard, it is used internationally for many different types of structure and by a range of industries.
