Some international standards have been adopted by Australia and these can be identified by the AS/NZ/ISO prefix. If access is available to these standards they will be identified in the Standards Australia database by the "View Online Here" icon.

The Library does not provide access to other international standards such as British (BS), German (DIN), European (EN) or International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The Standards Australia database may list these standards in a search result list but those unavailable will be identified by a "Buy Now" icon.
