This preview copy has been added to the RISSB web site to allow interested industry and community stakeholders to use the RISSB change request process to log any observations or proposed changes.

RISSB will soon be reviewing this Standard in form of a RISSB aged review.

Once the review is complete, and assuming the standard is redeveloped, the Standard will then become available on the RISSB site as a RISSB Australian Standards® brand standard.
