Access standards from SAE, ICC, IEEE, ISO, and more. To request a standard we don't have, or if you have questions or technical difficulties, please email Carrie Barrett. Please note that only downloaded pdf standards from AS require FileOpen to be installed. CSA standards are now available through CSA OnDemand.
To download pdfs, be sure you:
Open Techstreet Enterprise and search for a standard.
PDF Viewer is enabled by default in Chrome. You must disable this feature to view AS standards. See the "Techstreet and Google Chrome" link below for instructions.
For more information please review the guides below, visit the Techstreet Enterprise Help Centre, or contact Carrie Barrett.
If you attempt to open a PDF and it is blank, that usually means that the FileOpen plug-in has not yet been installed successfully. The FileOpen plug-in is required to view Secure PDFs. If you have installed FileOpen and still see a plank PDF, confirm you did not change the name of the file when you saved it and that you are opening the pdf from the saved location on your computer.
If you are unable to print, try downloading a new copy of your file. If you are still unable to print, and you are using Acrobat Reader, use the following instructions:
Open Acrobat Reader.
Click on the Edit option in the menu bar.
Select Security (Enhanced).
Uncheck the box that says Enable Protected Mode at Startup.
Restart Acrobat Reader.
Open your file.
Those steps should enable printing. If you continue to have difficulties, please contact Carrie Barrett or the Library.
Note: Some publishers restrict the number of times documents can be printed.
A Secure PDF is a file containing features that prevent reproduction or distribution to other users, in the same way that users are prohibited from making copies of printed documents. This security feature simply enforces existing copyright laws.
Note: Adobe Acrobat Reader and the FileOpen plug-in are required to view Secure PDFs.
