New Zealand Standards
Standards are created by the organisation Standards New Zealand. Many Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods refer to them.
When a Standard is published or revised, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) reviews it to determine whether it is suitable to be used in the Acceptable Solutions or Verification Methods. Depending on the outcome of the review, MBIE may cite the entire Standard or parts of it in an Acceptable Solution or Verification Method. It may also cite the Standard subject to certain modifications.
