Call for Nominations to Represent NECA on Standards Australia Committees

NECA represents its members on over 40 Standards Australia committees. 28 of these are actively working on amendments to current editions and/or new editions. These Standards include the Wiring Rules, High Voltage, all solar standards, hazardous areas, cabling, communication standards and many more. There are also a number of vacancies on committees that require filling.

The expected commitment is determined by Standards Australia and the committee you represent. NECA expects committee members to represent the NECA membership’s broader interests whilst utilising their own expertise to help draft new and revised Standards. Meetings can be held virtually or in person across Australia and New Zealand and frequency will depend on the complexity and timing of the standards lifecycle. 

There are two primary reasons for reaching out to our members: 

  • To fill the nine vacant seats on Standards committees
  • Establish a list of members interested in joining any other committees in the future. 

To do this we are asking you to nominate your interest to join now. We will review all nominations to ensure we can best cover all committees.
