Open for consultation
We are currently seeking input on the proposed withdrawal of the following aged documents:
This consultation period starts on Monday 19 November 2018 and ends on Monday 21 January 2019.
- Inactive technical committee standards: Documents where no existing active committee is available to provide input
- Active technical committee standards without the required expertise: Documents that are managed by an active committee but the committee does not have the relevant expertise to review them
If an Australian Standard on this list
is still being used in your industry or community and you object to its withdrawal, we want to hear from you. Please email the Aged Standards Team
specifying which standard (number, title and publication year) and justification for your concerns.
Where objections to withdraw Aged Standards are raised, Standards Australia will assess the objections and where necessary undertake further consultation with relevant stakeholders before reaching a final determination on the most appropriate action to be taken.
Where there are no objections, Standards Australia will progress with the withdrawal of the proposed Aged Standards.
What happens when a standard is withdrawn?
The withdrawn status does not impact the document’s availability, or public’s ability to use the document. Withdrawn standards can still be purchased from SAI Global
The withdrawn status indicates that the standard is no longer relevant. Standards Australia will not undertake further work to maintain or update a withdrawn standard.
It is still possible for a withdrawn standard to be used within an industry or reference by a government if they choose to do so. One reason for this may be because there are no replacement technical documents readily available.
