BS EN 61111:2009 is not just a UK standard - it was drafted by the IEC.

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is the world’s leading organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies.

The IEC has harmonised various national standards and created a simplified standard which means it is now easier to understand and therefore specify the correct electrical safety matting.
