Standards Sales Service
Members of the public may purchase original copies of standards, guides, publications or handbooks issued by different standards bodies through the PSIB. Four major standards bodies have given us the authority to produce photocopies of their standards for sale locally. They are the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the British Standards Institution (BSI), Standards Australia (SA) and Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN). While photocopies can be ready for collection in two working days, original standards to be ordered overseas will take a longer delivery time.Detailed procedures are at the Guide to the Purchase of Standards.
Technical Enquiry / Advisory Service
The PSIB offers a free technical enquiry/ advisory service on overseas product standards, safety and certification requirements and regulations. The service aims to assist enterprises to be aware of and to have a convenient access to standards, safety and certification requirements of products and services, and as far as possible to assist them in understanding the technical content of the standards and requirements and offer suggestions on how to comply with them. Parties are welcome to obtain advice from our technical advisors in person or in writing. Please click to see a collection of technical advice/ enquiries. Where the enquiries involve in depth technical expertise, they would be referred to the relevant standards bodies for replies.
