Review of New Zealand standards



Standards New Zealand are not able to respond to technical queries about the content of a standard. This is outside of Standards New Zealand’s legislated purpose, responsibility, and areas of expertise.

We are unable to comment on the application or interpretation of our publications as these activities are handled by or technical experts in the industry, or, if the standard is cited in legislation, the applicable regulator may undertake these activities. Your individual situation may involve factors that we are not aware of and as such we recommend that you contact the relevant regulator or a technical consultant in your industry.

Note: an exception to this is a permanent technical advisory group that has been established to provide interpretations on fire protection standards. Please see our fire formal interpretations web page for more information.
