Australian Standards contracts

The most commonly used contract published by Standards Australia for building works is AS 4000-1997. The contract was prepared by a joint committee formed by Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand. The contract is the result of consensus among the Australian and New Zealand representatives on the committee.

Standards Australia was due to replace the AS 4000-1997 with an updated contract ('AS 11000'), but this is not proceeding at this stage.
