How to Find the Right Standard?

  • Intermediate 1, Course 1

There are many resources created by formal organisations for standardisation, professional and industrial associations, business associations, consortia, and fora to assist customers and users to address and find the right standard(s). Some of these organisations offer their standards freely via their website (e.g. standards developed by the ITU-T are publicly available and can be accessed freely) and some of them offer standards for a fee (e.g. most international, regional, or national SDOs). For example, one of the world's largest bibliographic databases of national, European, and international standards developed by over 200 organisations for standardisation from 29 countries, with over 2,400,000 records is called Perinorm. Available in three languages (English, French & German), the Perinorm allows users to easily make standards queries and manage their own standards database.
