Remanufacturing of mechanical products new field of technical activity

Issue 49 – May 2013

Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback on a proposal for a new field of technical activity on Remanufacturing of mechanical products. The national member body of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in China, (SAC), has proposed this activity.

The purpose of the new committee, if established, is to prepare Standards in the field of mechanical product remanufacturing. The proposed work programme includes the following proposed Standards:

  • Basic Standards of remanufacturing (terminology, general technical requirements, and specifications for mechanical products)

  • General technology and craft Standards of remanufacturing (including disassembly, cleaning, detection, and repair of used products)

  • General technical requirement Standards of remanufacturing

  • Evaluation Standards of remanufacturing (including design, technology, and equipment evaluation)

  • Remanufacturing Standards of mechanical products (including automobile, engineering machinery, engine, and machine tools)

→ Standards New Zealand is consulting with key stakeholders in this area to determine New Zealand's response. To receive a copy of the proposal, for more information, or to submit comments including support for or opposition to the proposal, please email Comments received will be used to form a New Zealand position on this proposal.
