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 which we propose to withdraw or reconfirm.

We are now consulting on the following joint standards across key sectors.

Can you contribute to the future of these standards?

Your industry knowledge and expertise can help us determine if they should be withdrawn, reconfirmed, or revised. We also need your views on what other standards or documents are being used instead of the proposed standard for withdrawal.

Standards proposed to be withdrawn

The following publications have been reviewed by the relevant technical committee (and other stakeholders where appropriate) and are subsequently proposed for withdrawal.

The publications are proposed for withdrawal for one or more 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 or the environment.

Withdrawn standards can still be used within an industry, community or government and are therefore still available for purchase.

Unless specifically stated, there is no proposed replacement for withdrawn standards.
