Requesting Standards to be unlocked

International standards are not available until a request unlock is received and payment is made. The Library will meet reasonable levels of expenditure but depending on budget may need to charge back to do this.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Where available, the i2i platform will provide you with information on any equivalent Standards that may be available. This information is listed within the Request Unlock box.


When you click Request Unlock you will need to fill in some details and then press Submit Form.

  • The request will be sent to the SMHS Library to organise the purchase which will be made depending on available budget.
  • If a charge back is necessary, approval is required from the head of department and the relevant business manager to allocate the charges to a departmental cost centre.
Once the Standard has been made available, you will then need to proceed to the Download tab and follow the download instructions.

Support and FAQs

Why am I seeing "License not available. Please try after some time."

If the licence to view or download documents is in use, you will not be able to access or download until the previous person logs out. You may be able to check the status from the top menu (See Tools > Current licence usage).

What's covered by the licence?

Australian standards are available; however, the online site also references other international standards from organisations such as:

  • AAMI - Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation
  • ANSI - American National Standards Institute
  • ISO - International Organization for Standardization
Is there a session time-out and/or a limit to concurrent users?

There is a time out of 8 minutes if someone logs in and is inactive. There is a ONE concurrent user license - This means that there can be only one active user online at a time (active means viewing or downloading a document). There is no limit to the number of users searching on the platform.
