Locating Standards

According to ASME: A standard is "a set of technical definitions and guidelines, “how to” instructions for designers, manufacturers, and users. Standards promote safety, reliability, productivity, and efficiency in almost every industry that relies on engineering components or equipment." 

Compliance with standards in the design process is voluntary, however, it may become mandatory if written into contractual business obligations and/or written into law or regulations.
