ASME, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, provides government and industry with engineering standards covering 69 different topics.  Some highlights are the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (now published every two years instead of every three) and the Y14 series of drafting standards.  

You'll notice that the document dates lag behind the actual release date of the standard.  This is primarily due to the administrative publishing cycle which takes the dated and accepted standard from the committee and processes it for distribution.

ASME standards are sold by Document Center Inc., a standards resource providing over 800,000 different editions to customers worldwide.  When you need standards, look to Document Center - Your Standards Experts.
