What you should know about copyright licensing

Requests for permission to reproduce or share standards 
You get access to the full version of a standard when you buy it. This access is exclusive for you as the purchaser: you must ask our permission to reproduce or share the standard. 

We protect the integrity of ISO and IEC standards in Canada and prevent them from being reproduced without permission. You may request permission by email at if you are:

  • a business or organization that wants to share a standard with your employees or reproduce the standard, in whole or in part
  • a student who wants to reproduce part of a standard for your thesis 

When requesting permission, please provide proof of purchase for the standard(s) you want to reproduce or share. 

There may be a copyright fee. This fee will depend on how much of the standard(s) is reproduced and if you want to use it for education, for sharing internally or for commercial purposes.

How to best use IEC and ISO standards: A user guide on licensing options and respecting copyright provides more information on how to use standards.
