Where can I buy European Standards in electronic format and have it delivered today? I've been to the BSI web site, but they say you have to wait 24 hours for a purchase.

Thanks for the help,

Crystal

National standardization associations Nov 8, 2007

Standards are very protected documents, even in electronic form. It is no wonder they have strict rules for selling them. Generally, you can buy European standards from any of the 30 national standardization institutions belonging to CEN:

Feel free to browse and seek the best price (generally price differs from one country to another). For instance, in Romania you can buy the EN15038 standard in English at about 12 euro, but in UK the price is around 60 GBP for the same standard. I believe that if you come from the US, you can buy from whichever (they have a non-competition convention).

I forget the website address Nov 9, 2007

Several months ago I found a website posting the this standard. Unfortunately, I didn't log the website address. However, if anyone want the standard, please write to me with your correct email address. I will send the MS Word document to you, which I copied for the website I said.

Hi Tony,

I'm sure you posted your message in good faith.
Do note, however, that a ProZ.com member sent me the following important information:

'I just wanted to point out that the above posting
offering to email a standard out for free is in
contravention of international copyright law, making it an
illegal act (China joined WIPO in 2001). I don't think
this should be condoned by this site.'

S/he definitely has a very valid point. Thanks for abiding by this.

Kind regards,

Evert Deloof-Sys
