Industry standards and guidelines are available from a variety of sources, including the individual standards developing organizations (SDOs) and the libraries of academic many institutions. There is often a cost associated with obtaining standards or guidelines from SDOs or their authorized commercial distributors. The monies derived from the charges are used to support the standards development process, so it is important to obtain such standards from authorized providers. In general, legislation and regulations can be found on the websites of the legislative or regulatory body.
