Multi-user Solution

Getting copyright licences and providing internal access to standards


Copyright legislation protects the intellectual property of authors and governs the use of works.

ÖNORM and ONR documents are works in their own right and, as such, are also protected under copyright law, with the exploitation rights being held by Austrian Standards.

By buying a standard you acquire a single-user licence, i.e. the right to use the standard on a single workplace. For many medium-sized and, in particular, big enterprises this is usually insufficient. As it is unlawful to reproduce standards without authorization, you need appropriate licenses for multiple users. Get more information in the following video (German only):

Mr Stöberl manages a medium-sized company. He buys a standard that is applied by several employees on four company sites. In order to avoid copyright infringements, he requests a multi-user licence from Austrian Standards.

How do I get a multi-user licence?

Austrian Standards makes available multi-user licences to you against a charge. These licences cover all company sites so that you can avoid unnecessary purchases of several copies.

You may obtain copyright licences from Austrian Standards not only for ÖNORMs and ONRs but also for documents issued by our partner organizations, such as ISO, IEC, DIN and ÖVGW.
