This standard specifies the requirements for water supply, sanitary plumbing and drainage installation and solid waste containment in motor caravans and caravans for the purpose of obtaining a self containment certificate. It includes two amendments:
- an amendment from 2012 to reference the Freedom Camping Act 2011, and introduce an easily recognisable sticker identifying self-contained vehicles that meet the NZS 5465 Standard
- an amendment in 2017 to strengthen the minimum requirements for a toilet within a motor caravan or caravan.
