I need some claification.  We are going to go to ISO as our drafting standard and are in the process of creating new title blocks.
I need to know if we can deviate from the ISO book on the layout of the information that we put in.  Some people here are saying that we can do whatever we want as long as we do it the same every time.  Others say it needs to follow the layout specified by the book.
Any imput would be greatly appreciated.

Yogibear,

You need to provide some clarification. What ISO specification are you referring to?

Yogibear,

A search of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) (www.iso.ch) website for "drafting standard" yielded this result:

ISO/IEC Guide 7:1994 Guidelines for drafting of standards suitable for use for conformity assessment
www.iso.ch/iso/en/CatalogueDetailPage.CatalogueDetail?C...

Is this the standard you are referring to?

Best regards,

Matthew Ian Loew

I think so.  I'm sure that the one we have is outdated though.

Yogibear,
there is difficulty in understanding your question.

ISO does not publish "books".  The most common type of "deliverable" is the ISO Standard.  ISO also publish Guides, Technical Specifications and Technical Reports.  Each deliverable has a unique number (e.g. ISO 9001) therefore if you can quote the number, this will help to define the problem.

Secondly, do you seek help with standards for drawing and draughting (i.e. making "blueprints", to use an old term that may nevertheless convey the meaning better); or with the rules for drafting the content of an ISO deliverable (such as ISO Guide 7 referenced by MLoew)?

Kind regards,

ddbk,

There remains here a fundamental lack of understanding regarding ISO standards. Please clarify what you are looking for after reading through other threads in this forum.

let me see if i got  it.there are many specific standards to be adhered in engineering drawing .there   are  guidelines to decide on each standard.is it?.
for example there is a standard on title blocks,then there is a standard on the paper sizes.and so on and so forth.right ...am i even close to understanding this  thing??

Look to the bottom of this web page:

http://www.iso.ch/iso/en/prods-services/prods-services/otherpubs/Quality.PublicationList?CLASSIFICATION=HANDBOOKS

A publisher has compiled a two volume set of ISO documents, all of which reference "ISO" drawing practices.

The other link posted above is Guideline 7, liberally translated as "How to write an ISO standard"
