To update your Chrome settings to allow PDF’s to open in Adobe please take the following steps.
In Chrome click on the 3 horizontal dots to the top of the right-hand corner of the browser.
From this page click on ‘Privacy and Security’ and then ‘Site settings’.
Scroll to bottom of page & click on the downward arrow by ‘Additional content settings’ - Select PDF document.
Click on button to turn downloading of PDF files on.
Once this setting has been changed the standards will open directly in Adobe when opened in BSOL.

The devices that you open standards on will need the FileOpen plugin installed on them.
Once the plugin has been installed you will be able to open standards in Adobe without issue.
