Reading standards online

Standards on your screen. Terms of use

The Bulgarian Institute for Standardization provides to its customers a service for remote online reading of standards.

What is the service?
You get the opportunity to read the standards you have selected from your own computer with the only requirement to have access to the Internet. The service covers the Bulgarian standards available in the BDS electronic database, or over 90% of all standards. Within 2 calendar days of the activation of your order you can view the texts of the standards repeatedly at any time. Standards can be read only on the screen, without saving, printing, coping, transferring, networking or re-selling in any way, in whole or parts of them.

What are the advantages of the service?
Considering the COVID – 19 pandemic environment and the recommendations for minimizing contacts and keeping distance in order to protect your health, the service of online standards reading provides you with the benefit to do this at home or at the office, and not to waste time and money. You only need a computer and Internet access.

You can read the texts of standards before buying them in order to be sure that these are the standards you need.

How to use the service?
Create your customer account at BDS website https://bds-bg.org/bg/login, if you do not already have one.
