If you would like to participate in our subcommittees, let us know. Standards New Zealand approaches Engineering New Zealand form time to time to ask for nominations of people to serve on standard development committees. Engineering New Zealand disseminate these request to relevant Technical Groups for consideration. The EEG is presently taking part in two standard reviews namely: AS/NZ 1020 The control of undesirable static electricity, AS/NZS 2293.1 Emergency lighting and exit signs for buildings - Part 1: System design, installation and operation and

AS/NZS 2293.3 Emergency lighting and exit signs for buildings - Part 3: Emergency luminaires and exit signs. Education Sub-committee looks at the supply and demand of graduates into the industry. We participate in conversations about matching supply and demand and national and regional levels across the board including technician, technologies and professional engineers (NZDE, BEngTech, BE programmes)
