NIST: National Institute of Standards and Technology

NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is one of the nation's oldest physical science laboratories. Established by Congress in 1901 to remove challenges to US industrial competitiveness, the agency has, over the years, provided technology, measurement, and standards that innumerable products and services rely on. Today, NIST is part of the US Department of Commerce. Standards from NIST are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.
