A question about Australian and International document standards. How do you know if you are writing a technical document to a 'Standard'. As an employee several years ago, we were given templates to complete our IT specifications and I was not privy to any type of 'Standards' process. If someone hires me to write a technical document, how do I know which standard I need to comply with if any? If I wish to look at any standards documents as a freelancer, I need to buy certain ISO or Australian Standards publications. I would assume the organisation would be privy to these documents and would supply them? Sorry if this is an obvious question. Sometimes stupid questions have to be asked!
