Access to NZS 8510:2017 Testing and decontamination of methamphetamine-contaminated properties has been sponsored by agencies who have an interest in making the standard freely accessible. These agencies recognise the importance of enabling industry, landlords, the staff of local councils, and the public to view the standard online at no charge.

Application of this standard will provide assurance that activities such as screening, testing, assessing, and decontamination of contaminated properties and disposal of their contents are carried out following good practice.

The standard was developed by a committee of 21 experts across relevant industries in the public and private sector. These included sampling and testing operators, decontamination contractors, property investment and property management interests, the insurance sector, local authorities, public health authorities, and laboratories. Central and local government were also represented.
