A Resource - Cheap Harmonised ISO and IEC Standards

Hi all,

As the cost of ISO and IEC standards for sale by most national and private standards agencies (generally, including medical device standards) tends to be quite high - especially for start-up medical device companies, I thought it would be useful to let people know that most harmonised ISO and IEC standards can be purchased in English language version from The Latvian national standardisation body Latvian Standard (LVS) for knock-down prices:

https://www.lvs.lv/en/services/services_EP.asp



Some examples:

EN ISO 13485:2012 can be purchased for €31.31.

EN ISO 14971:2012 can also be purchased for €31.31.

EN IEC 62366:2008 (Usability Engineering for medical devices) can be purchased for €33.55.

All of the above Standards would cost over €200 if they were to be purchased with my National Standards body and by checking out similar bodies for other EU countries, I found that the LVS was the cheapest with most others being significantly more expensive.

Most of the Standards I have purchased (including 10993, 60601-1 and others in the series, 15223, for example) have been in the range €20 to €40. This has saved us almost €1000 which is no small sum for a start-up medical devices company.

Hope this helps.

The same is true from Standards Estonia, who also have a facility that you can have temporary access to a standard for one day for just a couple of Euro, which is useful if you need to check as to the applicability of a particular standard.

Note that the very lowest of the prices offered are for highly restrictive licenses, typically single user, no network storage etc. They do however offer more open licenses which still represent very good value for money.
