Standards provide vital guidance to local governments and main road
authorities about how to design and implement safe, effective, robust
and reliable public lighting. With the rapid pace of technical
development in lighting and smart controls, ANZ standards are currently
the focus of much development work and must increasingly be considered
in conjunction with keyinternational standards and guidance documents .
An important part of the SLSC Programme is to work consultatively
with Standards Australia (SA) and Standards New Zealand (SNZ) to:
- To address the imbalances on some standards committees, identify
vacancies or a lack of representation on relevant committees by local
government, new-entrant suppliers and those with expertise in LEDs and
smart controls and their application to adaptive lighting , identify
suitable candidates to fill vacancies, nominate candidates and provide
appropriate briefing and support to nominees; and
- Ensure that standards reform proposals support the timely deployment of LEDs, smart controls and smart city technology.
