Technical Standards and Solutions

It is impossible to ensure the highest standards for construction without understanding what those standards are and how they are best enforced worldwide and within the MENA region. To that end, our Technical Standards and Solutions Division (TSSD) is devoted to collecting, analyzing, and ensuring our expert team’s understanding of every technical standard specification regulation for more than 300 international organizations, including ASTM, ANSI, AWWA, ACI, AASHTO, BSI, ISO, IEEE, and ICAO.

It is the largest library of hard copy and online engineering specifications, standards, codes of practice, and regulations in the world. We are quite proud of it, and even more proud that our dedication at ACTS to upholding and educating others has made us the preferred codes and standards supplier for Middle Eastern leading companies and organizations.

ACTS is also the only regional technical standards entity that assists design firms, owners, manufacturers, universities and other institutions in acquiring the professional specifications and standards they need to meet their project needs.

Under special consortia for online libraries, ACTS has opened access to our information to thousands of students pursuing studies in civil, mechanical, electrical and environmental engineering. We have also provided access to our hard copy and online libraries to official administrations, government agencies, and major consultants around the region.

We are able to advise on an enormous number of regulations and codes of practice, including those set out by:

Information Handling System (IHS)

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

American Society for Testing and Materials International (ASTM)

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

Techniques de l’Ingénieur

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

British Standards Institute (BSI)

International Code Council (ICC)
