IHS Standards Expert: Home

This guide will help you navigate the IHS Standards Expert platform and access digital standards through the library.

Welcome to the IHS digital standards guide

With IHS Engineering Workbench (formerly known as IHS Standards Expert), students and staff are able to access digital standards from several standards development organizations.   The library subscribes to both individually selected standards (e.g. ASME CSD-1-2012), as well as complete standards collections (e.g. API).


To begin using the IHS Engineering Workbench, click here: IHS Standards Expert


Please Note:

Recent updates to the IHS platform now require you to login to your individual IHS account, in addition to logging in through the Library website using your student/staff ID and PIN.  If you have previously created an IHS Standards Expert account, your login information for IHS Engineering Workbench will be the same.  If you have not already created an account, you can register a new account for free from the login page using your SAIT email address and a password of your choosing.


Currently, IHS Standards Expert provides access the following standards:

  • All active and historical API standards
  • The National Construction Codes (Building, Fire, Electrical, and Plumbing) (2015)
  • The Alberta Building Code (2014)
  • ISO 9712
  • ISO 15489-1
  • ISO TR 15489-2
  • ISO ISO/IEC 38500
  • ASTM digital standards may also be accessed via ASTM Compass


To begin using this guide, select any of the standards or publisher platforms listed above, or click on any of the tabs at the top of this guide.
