MSST

The purpose of Manufacturing Standards and Specifications for Textbooks is to maintain appropriate physical standards of quality and performance for elementary and high school instructional materials, and may include textbooks, related educational materials, bound, unbound, kit or package form, and technology-based materials.

These standards and specifications are intended as a guide to aid the manufacturer, the publisher, the textbook administrator, and the general public. These standards and specifications in no way preclude anyone, whether he or she has approved the standard or specification or not, from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming to the standard or specification.
