Standards: Searching for Standards

Information about Industry and Government Standards, at FLITE and beyond.

Finding Standards

Search engines for standards are provided by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and by standards vendors.

NSSN is a search engine "powered by ANSI." It provides users with standards-related information from a wide range of developers, including organizations accredited by ANSI, other U.S. private sector standards bodies, government agencies and international organizations.

Techstreet and IHS are standards vendors that provide the ability to search through a large number of documents. Techstreet is the preferred vendor when FLITE purchases standards.
