To make sure to access to the latest version of the standard, including Errata Corrige and Amendments.
Receiving notifications whenever the standard has been modified (new version, variant, errata corrige, interpretation sheet etc.).
Possibility to access from any devices (PC/Mac/Linux, tablet, smartphone) in the view function.

The historical version of CEI subscription is included automatically in the subscription and they can be consulted any time, whereas for the other publishers, can be included, on request, on the subscription.
You can subscribe to a single standard or to a group of standards of your choice.
Subscription to a single standard Subscription to a single standard is a subscription where the user can choice one or more standards from the same publisher, and asking to have access to them online. The subscription to a CEI single standard (stand-alone access) can be done directly from the CEI database by the end user. Subscriptions to a block of standards with multi -licence has to be required directly to CEI’s sales office. Please click to the link “Set up a CEI subscription”.
Subscription to a block of standards In this case the end user will give to CEI the number of standards and the publishers that intend to subscribe and once the subscription has been activated the end user can decide when add the standards and this can be done, any time until they are standards available. For example, for CEI Standards the block of standards can’t be no less then 10 standards. For the other publishers the minimum number of the standards, in the block, depend of the policy of the publisher.
For multiuser-licences or for blocks of standards (either CEI or other publishers) and for subscriptions to a single standard of other publishers it is necessary to contact CEI for the quotation.
They are two ways to set up a CEI GLOBAL Online subscription:
Named users The subscription can be used only by the end users that the company has written on the contract and they will be identified by their emails.
Simultaneous users Allows the company, that has taken this type of subscription to give access to all employees (potential users) but with a limit of users per time. In order to have this kind subscription, the company has to provide the number of simultaneous users that intend to give access along with the number of sites that need to have access to the subscription taken by the company.
To better understand the differences
Let’s take, for example, a company that purchased three licenses to access the standards of a certain publisher:
if you choose the Named Users licensing mode, you will be requested to specify the three users that will access the standards Once you have setup the subscription for the three users firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, only these three users can view (and/or download) the standards (also simultaneously)
if, instead, you choose the Simultaneous Users licensing mode, you will have to specify only the number of the users that simultaneously can access the standard, no matter who they are and no matter the total number of the company users that – potentially – could be interested in accessing the standards. In fact, any user with and email address @mycompany.com will be allowed to view/download the standards if there is at least one available license. If all the licenses are used, the fourth user will be blocked by MyNorma: as soon as one of the three previous users will disconnect, the fourth user will be alloed to enter the system
CEI offers two possible ways of using the subscription:
Online View Only Choosing the “only” view online the user subscribes to “only” consulting the standards via CEI portal, without the possibility to download or saving the content in their PC. In order to be able to use the “online view” the end user has to be connected, all the time, to internet either via PC or smartphone, tablet, etc. This solution is for all those users who do not need to have access to the content in a remote area and they do not need to print the hardy copy of the standard. An important aspect of this type of subscription is that it allows the user to open the content without being asked to install on the PC the FileOpen plugin (see “View, download and print mode”).
Online view with download and print View, download and print it is the complete access to the content: in addition to offering the “View only”, this kind of subscription enables the end user to download and printing the standard (each user can download one copy of each standard). To open the downloaded file the end user needs to install the FileOpen plugin, on the PC that is intended to save the standard (for more details, please see the FAQ).
It is a subscription to information services that allows the end user to receive notifications on changes on the standards, as well as to add, on the metadata of the standard, annotations and links.
Con questo tipo di abbonamento non si accede al contenuto delle Norme ma si hanno a disposizione strumenti per lavorare con le informazioni di copertina (i cosiddetti metadati).
This type of subscription does not give access to the standards but give to the end user a powerful search tool.
There are two tools available by the “Database” type subscription:
Bookmark The Bookmark service keeps you up-to-date with your own custom-selected standards as it monitors them for updates. In the event of a change such as a variant and/or errata corrige, an interpretation or abrogation sheet of the same standard an email will be sent to direct to the new document (new version, variant, errata corrige, interpretation or abrogation sheet).the user that has created the bookmark with a link
Notepad The Notepad service allows you to insert, on the metadata of the standard, notes and links that be useful for products or projects that the company is developing. The end user can use notepad to add information such as, for example, the most relevant chapter, the importance of the standard or part of it for the development of the project, link to documents and procedures, etc. The note add by a user will be shared with colleagues, based on the permission assigned to the groups created on MyNorma by the company
