Finding Standards

Whereas information pertaining to the name and number of the standard is fairly easy to locate, finding and accessing the full text of a standard may be a difficult task. This is because standards can be classified as:

  • Propriety - For internal or private use (e.x., standards to follow within a company). Virtual impossible to locate. 
  • By Consensus- Created by a standards developing organization (ex., ASTM, ASME, IEE). These standards are usually very expensive. Creating standards is a lengthy and costly process. The purchase of a written standard goes towards the cost of writing said standard
  • Governmental - Created by federal government agencies (e.x., FDA, DOT). Often freely available to the public. Assigned by regulating code of that governing body
