Review of aged standards
Standards New Zealand constantly reviews standards that are more than 10 years old to ensure they are current and continue to be fit for purpose
As part of this review, we ask for feedback from stakeholders on standards we propose to withdraw to help determine if they should be withdrawn, reconfirmed, or revised. We also ask what other standards or documents are being used instead of the standards being proposed for withdrawal.
These publications are proposed for withdrawal for one of the following reasons:
- The standard does not reflect current practice or research
- It is not suitable for new and existing applications (products, systems or processes)
- It is not compatible with current views and expectations regarding quality, safety and the environment.
Withdrawn standards can still be used within an industry, community or government and are therefore still available for purchase.
Below are New Zealand and joint Australian/New Zealand standards currently under review, as well as standards that have been recently withdrawn.
