MBIE draft report NZ approach to joint Australia- New Zealand Standards

3 Oct 2018

The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment is currently undertaking a review of the funding of joint Australian/New Zealand standard developments costs. They have released a draft position paper. Attached is the draft report that they have prepared following interviews conducted with a broad range of stakeholders.

I would appreciate any comments that members would like to make on the draft report. Water NZ needs to respond to MBIE by close of business on 19 October. Once the report has been finalised to reflect the comments MBIE receive, MBIE will provide the report and our advice to the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs.
