DVDs of our standards

ETSI standards can be downloaded free of charge via the standards search on our website.

Nevertheless, our collection of standards on DVDs is a valuable resource for telecommunications academics, libraries and others requiring multiple standards.

There are two ways to acquire multiple standards on DVD:

  • buy DVD libraries of all the standards we have ever produced
  • subscribe to quarterly updates of all our recently published standards on DVD. This subscription includes access to the On-line Update service (please note that this service will be discontinued by the end of 2016)

If you want to pay by credit card, please consult our price list and place your order online via the Webstore (not for GSM archives & history of GSM standards). Check for other ways to order and pay for our DVDs.

DVDs of all our standards

Our standards are divided into ‘libraries’ covering specific periods of time, with one library per DVD. The standards in each library are classified in different ways such as by keywords or type of standard.
