Tell us your idea for the digital delivery of standards


We are seeking entrepreneurial partners to help us 'break the book' when delivering New Zealand standards content to users. We are looking for third parties who have ideas for offering standards content in innovative new ways that provide greater benefits for customers and end users. The aim is to make standards content more useful and increase the traction for standards throughout New Zealand.

This 'Value Add Programme' (VAP) is designed to make the development of digital tools using standards content straightforward and inexpensive. Entrepreneurs receive fee-free copies of one or more standards to develop their digital tool. The product of that tool can then be sold under a revenue-sharing arrangement.

We offer a low-cost supportive path through the copyright system to help entrepreneurs manage their ideas into commercial viability.

Register your idea through the Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS).
