Access to Australian Standards

Standards Australia do not currently offer free public access to standards. Standards Australia made changes to their distribution and licensing policy in November 2019. Prior to this members of the public had been able to access standards, for non-commercial purposes such as private research or study, through their State Library. 

Standards Australia recognises the public benefit of free access to Australian standards and plan to fund and make non-commercial public access available by no later than December 2023. This access will most likely be provided online directly from Standards Australia.

Currently standards can only be purchased online, including from the Standards Australia Store.
