Find Standards


  • Due to license restrictions, access to IHS Standards is limited to PolyU students and staff.
  • Each standard document allows one user to access/view at a time. ISO Standards allow two users to access the same document at a time.

About how to open AATCC/IPC documents (secured PDFs):

FileOpen plugin is required to access AATCC/IPC documents. In addition, you may need to change a few settings in your browser before opening the secured PDFs. Follow the steps below:

  1. Download the FileOpen plugin from here: Choose the proper installer to download and install. 
  2. Then go back to your IHS screen:
  • For Chrome users, go to “Setting” in Chrome > Privacy and security > Content settings > PDF documents > then check “Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome”. After this, you will be able to open the secured PDF document.
  • For Firefox users, click on "Open with Different View" at the top pop-up message. Then, you will be able to download the secured PDF and view.
