A Series allows customers to get all parts of an International Standard at a discount price.
A Series is a package which contains all valid Publications of an International Standard at the time of purchase.
The designation of a Series is identical to that of the International Standard, with the addition of the suffix -SER.
Maintenance - The content of a Series is regularly evolving with the addition, replacement or withdrawal of Publications. Therefore, the price of a Series is not fixed. This unique characteristic is the reason why Series are available only at Central Office. A Series is automatically withdrawn when the corresponding International Standard is withdrawn.
Remark - A Series is developed only for a popular International Standard.
