Standards New Zealand (SNZ), the national standards body, provides an update on the progress of building related standards.

Just published

SNZ has just developed NZS 8603: 2004 Design and Application of Outdoor Recreation Symbols. Outlined in the Standard are the requirements for the design, application and testing of graphic symbols. It also provides specifications for the use of the symbols in various media. It is hoped the symbols covered will become ways of communicating various topics, including hazardous conditions, accessibility and areas where activities are permitted or prohibited, as well as describing any facilities, services and features on offer.
