A guide to identifying, finding and accessing standards for design, manufacturing and testing.

Researching standards

If you need to place an order for a specific standard:

(a) check the Standards in the UVM Libraries collections

(b) if the standard you need is not listed there, skip to the Request a copy of a standard box to place an order.


If you have a specific standard in mind and you are seeking more information about it, such as a table of contents, scope note, or preview, skip to Search: individual organizations. Locate the appropriate organization and look up the standard on its website.


If you are doing a general search for standards that might apply to your project:

(a) Consult with stakeholders who may be aware of relevant standards, e.g. faculty supervisor, research colleagues, client

(b) Review the individual organizations listed on this page. If there is one (or more) that specializes in your project's technology, go to its website and browse its standards.

(c) Search a standards aggregator: Search: multiple organizations.

(c) Biomedical projects: search the FDA Consensus Standards.
