Our Online Library service is a quick and efficient way to build and maintain a library of standards that give you 24/7 access to a personalised catalogue of standards. You will have access to the most up-to-date versions of your selected standards, including automatic updates when they are amended or revised. Most superseded versions of your selected standards will also be available free of charge.

You can add individual standards and catalogues to your subscription at any time throughout your subscription period, at a pro-rated cost.

You can choose from the full catalogue of New Zealand and joint Australian/New Zealand standards (approximately 2,900 standards), the building catalogue, and the engineering catalogue amongst others.

You can also create your own personalised catalogue of standards. This lets you choose the specific standards you need and define the number of concurrent users you require. These catalogues can be accessed by logging in through our website, or we can set up an IP-locked link if you have a secure staff portal.

If you'd like a tailored subscription, or have questions email our Online Library team.

Online Library subscription pricing

The cost of your subscription depends on which standards you choose and how many concurrent users you want to access your Online Library subscription. We can amend the available standards and user numbers during your subscription period and let you know of any pricing changes. For a quote email our Online Library team.


These provide access to a range of selected and popular standards online, available 24/7.
