Standards Australia has new distributor
The reach of Standards Australia has been given a boost by its participation in a distribution agreement with Techstreet.
The Clarivate Analytics company will become an additional distributor of Standards Australia content including Australian Standards and other technical documents such as ISO and IEC materials. The agreement will ensure greater access to content supporting innovation, safety and compliance in industries and communities across the country.
As part of the agreement, a new web store is being developed through which users will be able to access content. They can also sign up to a subscription service with Techstreet Enterprise, Techstreet’s standards management platform. Techstreet Enterprise provides easy, immediate access to one of the world’s largest collections of industry codes and standards, plus web-based workflow tools to help users manage mission-critical information and make better decisions.
Specific details and the new web store are expected to be launched in the coming weeks.
Standards Australia chairman Richard Brooks said his organisation had explored a number of local and global publishers and distributors before appointing Clarivate’s Techstreet as a new partner, saying it was an exciting step in improving access to Australian Standards while allowing the organisation to build internal capability and develop external partnerships to expand its methods of delivery.
He says: “Clarivate is a market leader in this space, with extensive experience in the distribution of technical content. We are excited about bringing choice to how customers access standards in Australia.”
He adds: “Ultimately, improving how we distribute our content ensures we serve our public purpose – to help industries work safely, sustainably and more effectively.”
Techstreet vice president Todd Fegan says his company is excited about expanding its efforts to deliver more options and easier access to users of Standards Australia’s content.
“We’re pleased to become a distributor of Standards Australia’s content and deliver better solutions together to help support Australian innovation and compliance.”
He says that for many years, Techstreet has been a trusted provider of industry codes and standards.
“We will continue our commitment to enhance our online library of engineering standards and related documents to create ongoing value for our customers.”
