Earlier research proposed the representation of the provisions of design codes as facts. These facts may be manipulated by standard-independent generic rules. This concept of standards processing is derived from PROLOG where a data-base consisting of facts may be manipulated by generic rules. This paper is a description of an implementation of this factual representation of standards in LISP. Section 4.2 of BS5950 for the use of steel in buildings has been used for illustration of the concept.
