Searching for standards

The search box is found in the top navigation bar of each page.

You can search for a standard by entering the title, keywords, or numbers that you want to search such as ‘3604’ or ‘timber buildings’ into the search box and clicking on the magnifying glass icon.

By default all search results will be displayed. You can also choose the 'Filter by' option on the left to show just content pages on the site, or standards.

If you filter by standards, you can then use the 'Refine' filter on the left to narrow your search according to Industry sector, Publisher or Status*. 

Once you have found the standard you are looking for, click on its title for further information. You can then add it to your shopping cart.

 *Status refers to whether a standard is current, in draft, has been superseded or withdrawn.
