  • Revised, Rescinded, and Obsolete Documents

    TIA standards and publications are periodically revised. The price may change for newer documents and those editions supersede the previous versions of the documents . If advance payment was made with your order for the obsolete item and the replacement document carries a higher price, the right is reserved to charge for any difference in price. Rescinded documents with no replacements and rescinded documents superseded by or incorporated into other documents are listed in the Numeric Index (on-line search of IHS's Web site) with the the appropriate notation. Obsolete documents can be purchased from TIA for $1.00 per page ($100.00 minimum plus shipping and handling).

  • Digital Rights Management (DRM)

    In order to reduce the risk of copyright violations, TIA requires its standards distributors to implement a technical security feature that prevents the unauthorized reproduction and redistribution of downloaded documents (ballots, published standards, and other technical documents) from any of the distributor's websites. For further information, please see TIA's DRM Policy.

    DRM permissions for TIA pdf documents allow them to be opened on a maximum of three individual computing devices. For example, a (1) desktop, (2) laptop, and (3) smartphone. Technical librarians and others who purchase electronic documents for others should NOT open them, but instead transfer the files to the ultimate user who intends to use the documents.
