Stay up-to-date with standards

As products, services, technology and society evolve over time, so do the standards that deal with them. So it’s important that you stay up-to-date otherwise you’ll be following increasingly out of date guidelines.

But staying up-to-date can be a time-consuming task, particularly if you use a number of standards. When you become a Member, however, the task becomes far simpler.

  • Every month, the details of every updated standard are collated for you in our Update Standards magazine which is delivered to you in a convenient print format. It’s also available as a downloadable and searchable PDF
  • You’ll also receive a monthly enewsletter that gives you information  about how your organization can perform better, news about standards, free event and offers, as well as tips and advice
  • When you use our Private List Updating Service we can automatically send you new print editions of any standards you use, national, international and foreign.

As a result, you can ensure that your organization always has the most up-to-date standards, helping you stay on the cutting edge of best practice.
