Welcome to the Standards Australia Public Comment
                                          

Drafts Open for Public Comment


Comment on a Draft Standard

An important stage in the development of an Australian Standard is the Public Comment period. The Public Comment period is usually open for two to three months. Anyone who feels they have something to contribute to a Draft Standard should use the Public Comment Period to provide their view on its provisions. All comments are considered in detail by the relevant Committee and, if necessary, further drafting is undertaken. Individual feedback will not be given by the Committee on the comments provided.

How to submit comments

If the draft you wish to comment on is listed below under "Draft Publication" then click on the corresponding link to "Make a comment". For all other drafts, not listed below, instructions on how to submit comments can be found on the inside cover page of the draft. All Draft publications currently open for Public Comment are available by selecting the "Download draft" button.

Changes to Draft Publication download process

Standards Australia has updated its process for downloading a Draft Standard. Visitors are no longer required to download the draft from the SAI Global Store.  All drafts are now available directly from Standards Australia by clicking on "Download draft". In addition, Draft Standards will continue to be made available on the SAI Global Store.
