Have Your Say on Subsurface Utility Standards
Standards Australia has published a revised draft standard for subsurface utility information and engineering.
The standard comes in two parts: Part 1: Information (and this is largely geospatial information) and Part 2: Engineering (engineering management). There have been several changes since 2019; significantly, recognition of GDA2020 as the national “Recognised-Value Standard of measurement of position” supporting legal traceability of positioning.
If you work in the utilities location industry and recognise the huge advantage offered by modern satellite positioning, please have your say.
Public comments close December 16. For more information, click here. To register and have your say, click here. Once registered, search for 5488; you’ll find two draft documents: DR_AS_5488.1_2021 and DR_AS_5488.2_2021.
