Fifty of ISO’s best-selling standards, such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 31000 (risk management) and ISO/IEC 27001 (information security management), are now available in formats compatible with the most popular e-book readers. In addition to paper and PDF, purchasers can now choose from the following formats:

  • Standard ePub format, compatible with most e-book readers such as the Sony Reader, Barnes and Noble’s Nook, etc.
  • ePub format optimized for Apple’s iPad and iPhone, which allows the full use of the functionalities of these devices.
  • Mobipocket format, compatible with Amazon’s Kindle.

The selection of e-book compatible standards is available in both English and French for the same price as the standards in PDF format.

ISO Secretary-General Rob Steele said, “The range of challenges for which ISO standards offer solutions continues to broaden in order to meet the expectations of the international community. In pace with this evolving content, it’s normal that the form in which users can obtain ISO standards also evolves.”
