Barwon Health Library Service: Australian Standards

Evidence for Excellence

Changes to Australian Standards Access

As from the 1st of May there has been a new requirement made to access the standards which IT is currently working on. In the meantime please contact the library if you are unable to open any required standard


All users on the Standards Online platforms must now have their own individual login using an email and password to access the platform as there are changed specific requirements for how copyright is protected for Standards Australia, ISO and IEC content within Australia

Please contact the library for more information or assistance
