    Hi all, new user here.

    I did some cursory searching on the forum but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Does anyone have a good automated method to receive notifications when a new edition/revision to specifications or standards is released? IHS Markit wants $500/year for a subscription to their notification service which seems outrageous since this should be an automatic process. Are there alternatives available that take the tedium out of having to manually check on a regular basis for new documents?

    Thanks!

    Hello and welcome:

    I don't believe there is. I don't know how much of a premium you put on your time or how many standards/specifications you deal with, but $500 doesn't seem to me to be too bad, unless you're in the world of ISO 9001 et al, in which case it's certainly not worth it.

    It appears that if you purchase from the IEC Webstore, they will send you an alert if the standard you purchased there was updated. I recently got notice from them of updates to IEC 60601-1-2 and -1-6. I don't know if the others provide such a service but it's nice they do (and maybe that'll influence others).

    OP here.

    I found that TechStreet offers the exact service I was looking for free of charge. For those interested, you can set up an account with TechStreet and then navigate to a document's page and click the TrackIt button to receive notifications of document updates.

    Like I was saying, IHS Markit wanting $500 for an automated service like this is ridiculous.

    Hope this helps.
