meinNormenAbo subscription

Practical online access to the entire Austrian standards portfolio – at a fixed price

Subscribing to standards instead of buying them

Austrian Standards offers you online access to the entire ÖNORM portfolio (for general topics) and optionally also to the OVE portfolio (for electrotechnology and information technology) via meinNormenAbo.

For a fixed monthly price, you have access to all ÖNORMs at any time and from anywhere, and with an additional charge also to OVE standards:

  • Optional OVE portfolio: OVE, ÖVE, ÖVE/ÖNORM as well as the nationally adopted ETSI standards – except OVE E 8101

Our online service is aimed specifically at small enterprises that regularly apply ÖNORM or OVE standards.

Your Advantages

  • Calculable costs: You pay the same price no matter how many standards you access in the selected portfolio.
  • Easy search: With access to the complete ÖNORM portfolio (or also to the OVE portfolio), your search for the required standard is facilitated.
  • Always up to date: Always up to date: In the subscription service you automatically access the current standard.
  • Convenient reading access: Whether in the office or at the customer's, you always have access to the desired standard via an internet-ready device – of course mobile-optimised and with user-friendly functions.

meinNormenAbo is available from € 91 per month per user. The exact price depends on the size of the company, the number of agreed users, the chosen subscription option and any extension to include the OVE portfolio.

Frequently asked questions

On the product in general

meinNormenAbo from Austrian Standards is a digital subscription service that allows you to use the content included in the package selected during the term of the subscription.

Standards from Austrian Standards. These are: ÖNORM, ÖNORM EN, ÖNORM EN ISO, ÖNORM ISO/IEC, ONR, ONR CEN/TS, ONR ISO/TS and the related addendums. 

The OVE portfolio is also included as an option at extra cost. This includes: OVE, ÖVE, ÖVE/ÖNORM and the nationally adopted ETSI standards. OVE E 8101 is explicitly excluded.

No. The meinNormenAbo service currently only covers digital utilization in our application.

The tool is a browser-based application that allows you to read and use standards on any internet-ready device.

In this case, documents are displayed in the pdf.js format.

No. There are no credits for standards that you previously bought. If the online management tool effects 2.0 is used, you can take advantage of the browser-based application for this standard both by purchasing it and by subscribing to it. The Redline does not replace the standard.

The cost of the Basic version starts at € 91 net per user and month.

On the content of the packages

Current ÖNORM standards are effective ÖNORM standards, i.e. ÖNORM standards that have not been withdrawn.

Historical ÖNORM standards are ÖNORM standards that have been withdrawn.

Basic provides access to German documents, Advanced to German or English documents and all language versions available (German, English and, in some cases French) are accessible in Professional.

Some legislative texts make reference to standards. These standards are highlighted specifically and provided with a hyperlink to the relevant text.

Many standards are mutually interdependent and make reference to each other. These are links to further standards that contribute to the correct application of the standard.

This service facilitates the comparison of two documents. It is often called "redlining" and highlights changes in comparison to the previous version of a document. This allows you to respond faster and more efficiently in adapting your own products or services.

On the trial account

We provide you with a trial account for one month free of charge. Please note that the demo account only includes a few ÖNORMs, whereas the full account of course covers the entire ÖNORM portfolio.

Your registration for the free test access is non-binding. There are therefore no cancellation fees.

On the utilization agreement

You may access, read and use the contents. Moreover, you can (depending on the package selected) add your own comments, track changes and follow legal and normative references.

You must not save, print and pass on the contents neither in full nor in part. Likewise, you are not allowed to edit them as defined in copyright law. This means, in particular, that you must not translate or integrate them in full or in part into other works, including internal working documents.

No, this is not permitted. The user accounts are set up for one specific person and may only be used by the account holder.

The specific price per user and month depends on the size of your company, the related minimum number of users or the actual number of users as well as the package volume. Our Sales Team will be pleased to advise you!

If your company's size changes, please contact our Support Team in order to update the utilization agreement.

The minimum number of users depends on the size of your company.

No. If you choose the Advanced package for your company, all users will enjoy the benefits of this package.

To determine the size of your company for this service, we use the average total number of employees during the business year (the average number of employees, for short). This average number of employees includes full-time equvalent employees (part-time employees are considered in line with their working hours) and apprentices, but does not take account of temporary workers.

To access the contents (as well as your existing comments) you need an ongoing, effective utilization agreement (subscription). The right to use them ends when the utilization agreement is terminated.

Your personal data are stored in line with all legally required measures in compliance with the GDPR. For further information, please read our Privacy Policy.

Invoices are issued annually in full in advance for the respective service year (calculated from the time when access to meinNormenAbo was activated). The invoice will show the total amount due for the entire service year; there will be no further breakdown by month or number of user licenses.
