Find standards

The purpose of standards is to create uniform and transparent routines that many can agree on. There are international and national organisations that develop and publish standards.

As a student or researcher at KTH you have access to standards in several databases. Go to the library’s search tool Primo and choose Databases > Databases by type > Standards

SIS Abonnemang

In SIS Abonnemang you can find national standards from three organisations; Swedish Standards Institute (SIS), Svensk Elstandard (SEK) and Svenska Informations- och Telekommunikationstandardiseringen (ITS). In this database you can find international standards like ISO, CEN, and IEC.

Search for the number of the standard or title. Click on Read standard to look at the standard. If the standard is not in the database, you can suggest a standard with the button “Suggest addition”. If you have made a suggestion, it will be available in a few days.

ASTM Compass

In ASTM Compass you find standards from ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) International.

IEEE Xplore

In IEEE Xplore you find standards from IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology).

Can not find the standard that you need? Contact us  and we will try to help you. We have limited access to standards outside the agreements above. The reason for this is that standards only can be bought for individual use.
