Latest News: NSAI launches new-look webstore

Ireland’s official standards body, the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI), has launched a new-look webstore, to enable organisations across Ireland to access thousands of national, European and international standards more quickly and efficiently.

Last year, over 250,000 standards were accessed through NSAI’s online catalogue at

As a result of the European Standardisation Strategy, standards are recognised as a critical tool to drive economic growth, technological advancement, competitiveness, interoperability and innovation.

To support organisations that use standards, NSAI has unveiled a platform that promises a higher quality experience for users of standards, improved navigation and a new ‘look and feel’.

At the heart of the redesign is NSAI's commitment to provide users with a faster and more streamlined experience. With optimised performance and intuitive design, users will be able to access the information they need more quickly, such as  specific standards, technical documents and resources.
