Keeping Standards up-to-date
Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology andsystems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, andnew editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued.Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselvesthey are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments whichmay have been published since the Standard was purchased.Detailed information about joint Australian/New Zealand Standards can be found byvisiting the Standards Web Shop at www.standards.com.au or Standards NewZealand web site at www.standards.co.nz and looking up the relevant Standard inthe on-line catalogue.Alternatively, both organizations publish an annual printed Catalogue with fulldetails of all current Standards. For more frequent listings or notification of revisions, amendments and withdrawals, Standards Australia and Standards NewZealand offer a number of update options. For information about these services,users should contact their respective national Standards organization.We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especiallyencourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies orambiguities.
