There is only one outlet for ISO standards, and that would be the ISO. They aren't located in the USA.

It's pretty simple. While there are any number of places (and vendors) that will help you implement these standards, the actual items can only be purchased from BSI. The B there stands for British, so there it is.

I used to purchase standards directly from them. The move to downloadable PDF files is a good step forward. A4 is a real nuisance if you are in the US instead of England. -- It's Full Disclosure. Post the disclosure here, not on your website. You may not have a web site tomorrow. _______________________________________________ Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
