Pending Revision
Pending revision indicates that as a result of the Aged Standards review process, the document needs updating. If no project proposal, meeting the quality criteria, is received within the 12 month timeframe, the document shall be withdrawn.

Available Superseded
An Available Superseded Standard is one, which has been made available for a period of time although it has been formally superseded by another Standard. Its availability is maintained where it is referenced in legislation/regulations or in other Standards and its use should be restricted to where so referenced. No responsibility is taken by Intertek Inform as to the ongoing technical validity of such a Standard, the responsibility resting with the referencing authority.

A superseded Standard is one, which is fully replaced by another Standard, which is a new edition of the same Standard.

A Withdrawn Standard is one, which is removed from sale, and its unique number can no longer be used. The Standard can be withdrawn and not replaced, or it can be withdrawn and replaced by a Standard with a different number.

A document that is past its comment period, but has not been superseded and where it is unlikely the project or product will go ahead.

“Obsolescent” indicates that the Standard is not recommended for new equipment or as a current practice, but it is retained in order to provide for servicing of existing equipment or requirements.

A redesignated Standard is one that has had its number changed. This could be the main number, the part number or the sub-part number.

A document that has not been superseded, but where the project or product is no longer required.

At Intertek we supply Standards from many different publishers. Each publisher defines their own requirements relating to what users are licenced to do with their content.

Standards Australia have updated how their content can be used and require all distributors to ensure that users are not able to breach their licence requirements.

As a result, we have implemented technology that limits usage of Standards Australia content to only what is allowed in the licence agreement.

This includes :
 -            Access to open and to download the document for one user on one device. If you would like access for more than one user, please select the Multi User PDF option
-             Ability to print 2 copies
For more information on DRM details, see link for more information.
