Standards New Zealand has recently undertaken a review to ensure we have the right capability and capacity to deliver on our business strategy. This has resulted in some changes to our structure and to some key roles in the team.
A new core role for Standards New Zealand will be the focus on ‘NZ Inc.’ We will be working with industry and regulators to proactively develop medium-term standards work programmes for sectors that benefit the New Zealand economy. In order for us to do this, we need to work more closely with priority sectors and key stakeholders across the economy where standards can play a larger role.
Part of Standards New Zealand’s transformation programme has focused on new digital formats for standards. We currently print hard copy publications and supply the same documents digitally as PDFs. Both of these publication types have their use, but with more people reading from different screen sizes (such as phones), something else is needed.
