Welcome to the March edition of Touchstone.
We are conducting research through March and April to help us improve our products and services and we are working on a new look for Touchstone.
Welcome to the first issue of Touchstone for 2017. I hope you had a restful and enjoyable break over Christmas and the New Year. Six weeks into the New Year, the Standards Approval Board has met twice and we are already very busy here at Standards New Zealand.
This is the last Touchstone for 2016. Thank you for all your support of Standards New Zealand during the year. Please accept my best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season and I will be in touch again in February 2017.
We celebrated World Standards Day on 14 October by acknowledging the contributions of thousands of experts and volunteers both in New Zealand and around the world to the development of standards.
We would like to hear your views about adopting an international consumer product safety standard.
Welcome to my September update.
In this month's update there is international news and another batch of older joint standards are proposed for withdrawal. We are seeking your comments.
Welcome to my August update.
We are revising NZS 3640:2003 Chemical preservation of round and sawn timber and MBIE is seeking feedback on proposed updates to the Building Code on testing of 500E ductile steel mesh.
Welcome to my July update.
Electrical practitioners can now watch two new videos on our website and we have begun work to revise NZS 3640:2003 Chemical preservation of round and sawn timber.
Welcome to my June update.
It has been nearly 4 months since Standards New Zealand moved to MBIE and they have flown by. I thought I would touch on some of the work we have been doing and some of the changes that have happened.
Welcome to my May update for Touchstone. It has been a busy time since I wrote last month.
The Standards Approval Board is up and running and has had two very productive meetings.
