International Standards

While Australia/New Zealand standards provide the primary guidance documents for road and area lighting, rapid advances in LED street lighting and smart controls have made international reference documents increasingly important and referenced in Australia and New Zealand.

The following international standards and guidelines can be useful reference documents for road, street and public space lighting in Australia.
