Whenever there is a reference to a standard, the standard is valid. Some of our standards have been labelled "Not for new design", but these standards are also valid if referred to. The text "Not for new design" is primarily an indication for our for our design engineering departments, stating that the standard is not intended for new designs.
Most of our more recent drawings contain a reference to a standard named "Symbols, designations and general drawing methods". This standard, STD 101-0005 establishes some general rules and makes reference to the valid standards for most of the symbols in our drawings.
If you have any doubts or queries regarding the validity of our standards, please contact the responsible purchasing department, or email email@example.com
referring to Volvo Group* in their own documentation
Volvo Group* are the property of the respective company and may only be used by non-Volvo Group and companies when the standards are called upon or referred to, directly or indirectly, in contractual documents relating to the Volvo Group.
This means that they may be used when the Volvo Group utilizes the primary contracted company as a supplier of development services, supplier of production parts or supplier of tools, equipment etc. to manufacturing plants.
This also applies to tier 1+ n suppliers, i.e. if a tier-1 supplier has a contract with the Volvo Group , a tier-2 supplier may also use the standards.
For more information, contact Volvo Corporate Standards at firstname.lastname@example.org

Technical requirements (TRs) are not available from our website. They have to be ordered from the purchasing organization of the Volvo company with which your company is dealing.
Volvo Corporate Standards cannot distribute national or international standards to suppliers and other external parties. If such standards are required, contact your national standards body or another company selling external standards, e.g. IHS.
There is no index of the contents of all our standards available online. The documents to be used by the supplier are normally indicated in the drawing or in other documentation from Volvo's purchasing department, e.g. in the PQP manuals.
Some of our standards have been labelled "Not for new design", but these standards are also valid if referred to. The text "Not for new design" is primarily an indication for our design engineering departments, stating that the standard is not intended for new designs.
The Corporate Standards website only contains drawings of standard parts. The drawing numbers begin with 105, followed by four additional digits. If the drawing you require is not available although it begins with 105, it may be a supplier drawing which is intended only for internal use within Volvo or only for the supplier concerned. These drawings are not available on the Internet.
The KEP* (key elements procedures) documents can be found at 'Our supplier requirements'.
*Key Elements procedures are today replacing the PQPs (Purchasing Quality Procedures)
Usually, the standard number can also be found in the materials indication. If this is not the case, please contact the purchasing department of the Volvo company with which you are dealing.
Within the Volvo intranet, there are various databases containing this information. A lot of this terminology is also found in standard STD 001-0001 (For VCS 5001,119).
