There are ten different standards for o-rings.
While we are most familiar with AS568 and metric, the list also includes:
BS 1806
ISO 3601-1
DIN 3771
NFT 47-501
JIS B2401
BS 4518
SMS 1586
ISO 6149

This fantastic cross-reference from PAI lists virtually every non-metric o-ring out there, and is very handy when you are trying to spec an oring from your own measurements, to replace via one of the suppliers in this thread.
And PAI is an easy group to work with!
