I am also worried by the Australian influence of this draft.
The Australian influence has been there since the orginal document of AS/NZS 3000 was written.
And do you know what caused that?.
Standards New Zealand, due to lack of funding had thier hands tied.
I'm not blaming the Australian Standards part of the deal at all, if the NZ part had got off thier backsides and bothered to seek funding, we would have had a better result.
It's all very well to have a beuracracy (sp??)(I hate that word), but when they sit back and do nothing and let the other half of the equation do the work for them, that is where it has gone wrong.
Us in NZ have suffered as a result of this incompetence.
