Tips for searching for standards

To locate a standard, you should (ideally) know one or more of the following:

  • Acronym or name of the publishing organization
  • Standard number
  • Title of the standard
  • Date of the standard
  • The subject of the standard

When searching, do not include the dates in the document number

  • Search ASTM F54862, NOT ASTM F54862-2017

Avoid searching for general terms, such as "fan standards" 

  • Search by document title or number; if you don't have this information, type-specific keywords that should appear in the title, for example, "axial fan" 
  • Try searching one of the indexes below to identify the correct standard
