Pricing and Plans – Easy Access Subscriber

This option provides evaluators and business analysts with a single-user subscription to navigate the current release of the specification online. After a 30-day free access period, IFX Easy Access subscribers who continue with either a paid monthly or annual subscription also receive the current release in PDF form.

When you register for access to the BMS, you also get the benefit of ongoing access to the IFX Community Forum, where practitioners exchange views and provide ongoing advice arising from practical experience.  As you peruse the BMS, be sure to take advantage of that forum and all of the material available freely here.
