A message from the Standards Association of New Zealand

  • G. H. Edwards Standards Association of New Zealand, New Zealand


The Standards Association has a distinguished ancestry. All closely associated with a national building code.

The Standards Institution, formed in 1932 under the wing of NZIE (then the NZ Society of Civil Engineers), started the development of the first code, NZS 95. This was extended and developed by the NZ Standards Institute (part of DSIR and later a division of the Department of Industries & Commerce), and was developed further as NZS 1900. This independent Standards Association (SANZ), formed in 1966, is proud to continue this work.
