SCC protects the integrity of ISO and IEC standards in Canada and prevents their unauthorized reproduction. A business or organization who wants to share a standard with its employees or reproduce the standard, in whole or in part, or a student who wants to reproduce part of a standard for their thesis may request permission from SCC.
For information on reproducing or sharing ISO or IEC standards, visit Buy Standards. For any other standard, we recommend that you contact the relevant standards developer directly.
SCC provides a valuable service to eligible academic institutions in Canada by offering access to ISO and IEC standards through its Standards in Education program. Direct, easy access to ISO and IEC standards helps students gain a better understanding of the standardization process, produce higher quality academic work and be better qualified to enter the workforce.
