Standards New Zealand and the P8635 committee are seeking public comment on DZ 8635 Passenger ropeways and passenger conveyors.

The public comment draft of NZS 8635 is an identical adoption of Canadian standard CSA Z98:2014 Passenger ropeways and passenger conveyors, modified only by the addition of New Zealand-specific material clauses covering New Zealand regulatory requirements, clarification of definitions and terms in a New Zealand context, equivalent standards, standards relevant to the New Zealand situation, and additional sections on ropeways used in New Zealand but not covered by Z98-14. Comments are invited only on the New Zealand-specific material, as the adopted Canadian standard itself is not intended to be altered.
