We are not currently seeking public input on the proposed withdrawal of any aged documents.
What happens when a standard is withdrawn?
The withdrawn status does not impact the document’s availability, or public’s ability to use the document. Withdrawn standards can still be purchased from our distributors.
The withdrawn status indicates that the standard is no longer relevant. Standards Australia will not undertake further work to maintain or update a withdrawn standard.
It is still possible for a withdrawn standard to be used within an industry or reference by a government if they choose to do so.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.
