In March 2016 the Standards Council was disestablished and standards development and access functions were brought into MBIE as the New Zealand Standards Executive under the Standards and Accreditation Act 2015. The policy objectives which underpinned the change were responsiveness to users, more timely development and maintenance of standards, maximising contribution to the economy (trade, productivity, health and safety), and a financially sustainable operating model.
Standards New Zealand has developed a new business strategy in support of these policy objectives and to position the organisation to achieve its vision to be a world leading and innovative national standards body working to grow New Zealand for all.
The strategy recognises that the international standards landscape is rapidly changing in response to globalisation and digitisation, and our customers have changing needs and expectations.
Our response to meeting this challenge is to work to enable easier access to standards in a digital world. One of the ways we will do this is by enabling innovative new value-add products and services that customers want to use and which will better meet their needs for using and implementing standards.
These ‘value-add’ products or services would be designed, created and brought to market by the third-party, under contract and licensing arrangements with Standards NZ. The products or services would provide customers with recognisable additional value over the traditional copy-of-the-document model of access.
