Access to Australian Standards

Currently there is limited free public access to standards.  Some public libraries maintain access to standards, contact your local library to see if a subscription is maintained to Australian Standards, read more here. Standards can be purchased online, including from the Standards Australia Store.

In 2019 following extensive consultation, Standards Australia released their  Distribution and Policy Framework recognising the benefit of providing access to Australian standards via public libraries and directly by Standards Australia. In order to ensure their continued sustainability,  Standards Australia are currently accelerating the development of new product distribution models which are ultimately designed to allow them to fund access to content for personal, domestic and household use. At this stage they are still working towards the 2023 date.
