Why do I have to pay?
IACDS is a non-profit organization, but to develop its activities needs resources.
These resources come from the membership fees and any other sources of income, including subscriptions to the private contents of the website.
If you are an independent professional or part of a specialized organization related with the concrete drilling and sawing applications, you can support IACDS through membership or a paid subscription.
If you are a professional from a Public Administration or from another organization not linked directly to concrete drilling and sawing, we also offer partnership agreements. When you become a partner of IACDS, you will receive one Premium Subscription free of charge.
Can I purchase access only to a specific content?
Sorry, but no.
Technically it is very complicated to give specific user access to specific contents, so we decided to create user levels.
Once registered as free user, you will be able to upgrade your level and have access to the IACDS contents, as listed on this page.
If you want any of the IACDS printed publications, buy them directly (while we have stock).
