Finding Standards & Codes: Standards Organizations

What they are, how to find them and how to get them

About Organizations

This page lists the most widely-known standards organizations across Canada, the United States, and Britain. These organizations are not industry-specific, and may be associations of standards bodies. 

If the organization you're looking for isn't listed, or you are not sure which agency issued the standard, check Google or a standards aggregator site. 

Standards Organizations: National & International

Waterloo provides access to some content from most of these standards organizations, either in print or online. See notes for each individual organization.
