CATALOGUE OF CROATIAN STANDARDS
The Catalogue of Standards by the State Office of Standardization and Metrology contains all the accepted normative documents. The main section of this catalogue contains a listing of standards and standard-type documents classified by subjects. The aim of this approach is to provide optimum possibilities for the selection of documents interrelated by their subjects as well as to provide all necessary data with regard to subject documents. The register of fields is based on the International Classification for Standards (ICS).
HOW TO USE THE CATALOGUE OF CROATIAN STANDARDS
The classification by subject represents a hierarchical classification, which consists of three levels. Level 1 covers broad fields of activity in standardization e.g. Road Vehicle Engineering, Agriculture, Electrical Engineering, etc. Each field contains a two-digit notation, e.g.
The fields are subdivided into groups (level 2). The notation for a group consists of the field notation and a three-digit group number separated by a point, e.g.
The groups are further divided into sub-groups (level 3). The notation of a sub-group consists of the group notation and a two-digit number separated by a point, e.g.
|29.120.50||FUSES AND OTHER OVER CURRENT PROTECTION DEVICES|
Croatian standards and similar normative documents may be classified at this stage into groups and sub-groups, in accordance with the International Classification of Standards (ICS). The listing of standards classified by subjects contains the following bibliographic information:
(1) Reference number
– This consists of a prefix, a serial number and the year of publication
|(1)||(2) (3)||(4)||(5) (6)||
|HRN ISO 4226:1997||1. Ed. pr.||(hr)||p. 6 (B)||
|Air quality – General aspects – Units of measurement|
The prefix in the reference number may indicate:
– The prefix HRN without additional letters indicates a pure national standard;
– The prefix HRN ISO denotes standards adopted from the ISO standardization system;
– The prefix HRN IEC denotes standards adopted from the IEC standardization system;
– The prefix HRN EN denotes standards adopted from the CEN/CENELEC standardization system; – The prefix HRN ETS denotes standards adopted from the ETSI
– The prefix HRN DIN denotes standards adopted from the DIN standardization system;
– indicates the edition of publication
The relevant technical committees review Croatian standards at maximum intervals of five years, in order to determine their status.
(3) Acceptance of standards
– pr. (by adoption)
(4) Language of the standard
– Croatian Standards adopted from the standardization system of International/Regional standardizing bodies, as well as those adopted from the standardization system of other countries can be published in Croatian language, as well as in the official languages of the standardization bodies the standards have been adopted from. Language abbreviations are governed by ISO 3166.
(5) Number of pages of the standard
(6) Price code
– information on price codes is given in a separate page.
(7) Technical committee
– the number of the TC refers to the technical committee responsible for the development (adoption) and maintenance of the standard.
(8) Title of the standard
HOW TO PLACE ORDER
Orders for Croatian standards and other publications published by the State Office for Standardization and Metrology should be addressed to its Technical Department.
In order to avoid any mistake when preparing orders for standards and standard type documents it is of vital importance to accurately quote the standard’s reference number as given in the Catalogue. For standards published in several parts you should specify the number of the required part(s). Should subject part(s) not be specified in the order, all the parts shall be quoted.
STANDING ORDER SYSTEMS
A) According to field, group and sub-group
In the Catalogue all Croatian Standards and standard-type documents are classified into fields, groups and sub-groups, which is based on the International Classification for Standards (ICS). The ICS is described in the section How to use the Catalogue. It is specifically designated to meet the needs of the customers requiring an “automated” service and enables the customer, once his standing order has been recorded, to receive all standards in the field, group or sub-group relevant to his activity and to automatically receive all new or revised standards as soon as they are published.
Standing orders may cover:
– a field
– a group within a field
– a sub-group within a group
– selects the field, group or sub-group of interest;
– immediately receives all existing standards published in the selected field, group or sub-group at a significant discount on the current list price;
– automatically receives, again at a discount price, all subsequently published standards in the selected fields, groups and sub-groups
1. If you are interested in all standards for Electrical engineering you should subscribe to field
29 ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
You will receive all existing published standards classified in this field. Subsequent standards published will be forwarded to you automatically.
2. If you are interested only in standards for electrical equipment for working in special conditions you should subscribe to group
– 29.120 Electrical accessories
You will receive all existing published standards classified in this group. Subsequent standards published will be forwarded to you automatically.
3. If you are interested only in standards for electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres you should subscribe to sub-group
– 29.120.50 Fuses and other over current protection devices
You will receive all existing published standards, which are in the above sub-group. Subsequent standards published will be forwarded to you automatically.
B) According to Technical committees
The Standing order system may also comprise the scope of activity of one or more technical committees, in this way all standards under the responsibility of a specific technical committee(s) the customer is interested in, will be forwarded to him automatically as soon as being published.

DOCUMENTATION AND INFORMATION CENTER
The Documentation and Information center of the State Office for Standardization and Metrology together with the Standards library, as its most important
section, represents the main enquiry point for the users of standards and experts engaged in standardization. The library’s holdings are comprised of more
that 120,000 different documents.
– National standards (HRN)
– By international standardization bodies (ISO, IEC)
– By regional standardization bodies (CEN, CENELEC)
– By other national standardization bodies (DIN, BSI)
– From particular fields of standardization (ASTM, MIL)
- DZNM Bulletin
- OIML- Recommendations and Documents
- Catalogues of Standards
- Magazines, Journals, Annuals
- Collection of Technical Regulations
- WTO Enquiry Point
There are several options in the search of standards, either by keyword or by subject. Besides the classical option to browse and search the catalogue, there is also the possibility to use the world’s leading bibliographic database of standards and technical regulations PERINORM on CD-ROM.
PERINORM contains a listing of standard records of international (ISO, IEC), regional (CEN, CENELEC), and different other national standards. The database is constantly being improved. Standards from different countries are added and revised documents are updated. PERINORM provides information on the title of standards, date of publication, outline, preceding documents, ICS, committee reference, and conformity with international standards as well as other relevant information.
