Review of joint Standards over 10 years old - update

Issue 50 – June 2013

As advised in the May 2013 Touchstone, Standards Australia is reviewing its catalogue of Standards that are more than 10 years old. This process, which includes joint Australian/New Zealand Standards, is being undertaken via technical committee consultation and New Zealand members are helping to guide this assessment. For now, this assessment process applies to joint Australian/New Zealand Standards that are led by Australia only.

As committee-proposed decisions are arrived at, Standards New Zealand is completing any processes that are necessary and checking due diligence.

The following joint Standards have now been reconfirmed. (A reconfirmation of a document indicates that the document is still technically valid, relevant, and compatible with current expectations for safety, quality, and environmental impact, without any changes being made to the publication. Reconfirmation involves retaining the original Standard number and publication year, but adding the year of reconfirmation to the website.)
