Standards Cloud

The fastest and easiest way to adopt ISO standards!

Create professional ISO adoptions in minutes with Standards Cloud!

Standards Cloud is a fully web-based platform that enables National Standards Bodies to produce high-quality standard adoptions using the same technology and source XML that ISO uses—no technical or typesetting expertise needed.

If you’re an ISO member organisation, creating your first 50 ISO adoptions with Standards Cloud is completely free of charge.

Adopt an ISO standard in three easy steps

All you need to create high-quality ISO adoptions is a computer with an internet connection.

  1. Upload the ISO ZIP package to Standards Cloud.
  2. Enter your national metadata in the Standards Cloud user interface.
  3. Click Publish!

Standards Cloud wraps ISO content with your organisation’s customised front and back matter to create a seamless national standard ready for distribution in just minutes!

A user-friendly online platform

Standards Cloud automatically combines ISO source XML and your national metadata in every standard adoption you publish, ensuring your PDFs will be searchable, shareable, accessible, and perfectly designed.

You’ll also enjoy all the additional benefits of an XML workflow, such as auto page-numbering, hyperlinks, tables of contents, and live linking of cross references and citations—no technical knowledge required!

The user interface is simple and intuitive, and can be set to English, French or Spanish with a click.

Powerful administrator options

Typefi offers free administrator training for all ISO members to get you up and running in Standards Cloud.

You’ll learn how to set up your adoption process and take advantage of the full range of administrator functions available, including managing user permissions, customising the user interface (UI), and setting up national metadata fields.
