The latest, up-to-date edition.
An Available Superseded Standard is one, which has been made available for a period of time although it has been formally superseded by another Standard.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 Standards Australia 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A superseded Standard is one, which is fully replaced by another Standard, which is a new edition of the same Standard.
A Withdrawn Standard is one, which is removed from sale, and its unique number can no longer be used. The Standard can be withdrawn and not replaced, or it can be withdrawn and replaced by a Standard with a different number.
A document that is past its comment period, but has not been superseded and where it is unlikely the project or product will go ahead.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A document that has not been superseded, but where the project or product is no longer required.
The Quick Search facility lets you search for a product using any keyword (or words) or standard number. The full products database is searched. This includes Standards Australia, ISO, IEC, EN, ANSI, BSI, DIN, ETSI, NSAI and JSA standards as well as many other products.
Where it finds a direct match, this is the first information it will supply. It may also supply you with a second list of possible matches if not many direct matches were found. If it cannot find any direct match, where possible, it will supply a list of possible matches, based on your search criteria.
In the Search box, if you know the reference number of the document you want, this is the most efficient way of locating the publication. Remember you don't need to enter the AS, BSI or DIN prefix. You may also enter part of the number and all standards containing that part will be displayed. If you don't know the reference number, enter a word or words that are likely to be in the title. For example searching for the word steel will find all standards with the word steel in the title.
