Free Access to Australian Standards

As a consumer, access to standards can help you become more informed about what to expect from product and service providers. In August 2023, Standards Australia launched a new program for improving access to Australian Standards. The Reader Room platform offers FREE read-only access for non-commercial (personal, domestic, or household) use to Australian Standards’ publications:

  • more than 2500 Australian Standards publicly available (read only).
  • three access passes per year i.e. a pass is required to view the entire standard in read only format.
  • the viewing time is for a 24-hour period.

Everyone is invited to make public comment on draft standards and suggest new standards. FREE limited read only access to the Australian Standards available at the Standards Australia Reader Room, follow the link by clicking here to access the Reader Room, more information here.

Standards Australia will continue to work on providing access to the remaining standards publications in the catalogue in the future.
