How to find NZ Standards online

  1. Go to NZ Standards Online - a database that gives online access to New Zealand standards.
  2. If you have not created a personal registration for New Zealand Standards, do so now by clicking on the Register button, filling in the form and click on Submit. This only needs to be done once.
    Otherwise log in using the email address and password you registered with. NOTE: This is a personal registration, your Unitec login is not linked to this database.
  3. Using the search boxes on left of screen, type in the standard number under "Document number or Organisation" eg 3604
  4. Click Search.
  5. In the centre pane, results of your search will appear. Find the Standard you are interested in, and click on the title. This will open a PDF of the document.
  6. Before viewing NZ Standards on this site, you may be asked to agree to the IHS Terms and Conditions.
