Withdrawal and Containment of Dated HISO Standards: Public comment document

Submissions close 5.00 pm, Tuesday 14 November 2017.

Published online: 
09 October 2017

HISO intends to withdraw certain standards and move others into containment as they are no longer fit for purpose or fully current.

Group 1 – Withdrawn standards

These are standards that are agreed to be not fit for purpose or are not in general use within the sector. They are to be withdrawn from publication and removed from the Ministry website.

Group 2 – Standards in containment

These standards while not in frequent use, retain some value. These standards will remain on the Ministry website but be qualified as ‘Standards in containment’. This means that these standards may:

  • continue to be used for systems in operation or where a minor update to the system is required
  • not be used where a new system is proposed or where a major change to the system is to occur.

How to have your say

The closing date for submissions is 5.00 pm, Tuesday 14 November 2017.

Comment is sought to ensure the sector is well-informed of the changes and has a chance to respond where there may be impacts or opportunities.

Please use the template included at the beginning of the comment document to record your comments. Be sure to quote the relevant standard number and name together with your thinking about this intended action.

In your submission, please clearly identity yourself and the organisation (if any) that you are representing. 

Submissions should be emailed to standards@health.govt.nz by the 14 November 2017.

HISO will consider all submissions and agree on any changes to the document.
