Using and citing SFS-standards in student projects

  • Use the standard as a source, draw your own diagrams or tables and cite the standard instead of copying content from the standard.
  • A citation or a reference must be marked with the complete designation, title and year of publication of the standard.

APA referencing style:

  • If the thesis or final project is commissioned by a business organisation, the student is not permitted to give the commissioner any standards copied or downloaded using the SFS Online license of the educational institution in question.
  • Standards may not be included in a thesis or final project as an appendix.
