An update to the different cost of standards

Further to an earlier blog about the excessively high costs of standards in the UK, I note that Estonia are now selling a pdf download of EN 15804 for 17.08 euros – the BSI member rate is 7 times more than this at current exchange rates (£90) and it’s 14 times higher for non-members.

This is for the European standard, in English, providing exactly the same normative information as BS EN 15804 available from BSI.

They also, extremely helpfully, offer a “full text browsing service” for 2 euros per view.  This lets you see the whole text of the standard!

As a relatively frequent visitor to Estonia in the past, I might even suggest you use the money you save to pop over to Tallinn where the Estonian Centre for Standardisation is based to enjoy the Baltic city (though the carbon associated with this option is not to be recommended).
