Australian Standards Quick Reference Service

All professional staff in A+ practices have online read-only access to Australian Standards® (AS), joint Australia/New Zealand Standards (AS/NZS) plus Australian and joint Australian/New Zealand adoptions of ISO and IEC Standards (AS/ISO, AS/IEC, AS/NZS/ISO and AS/NZS/IEC).

The service is designed as a reference and not as a replacement for purchasing commonly used Standards. However, part of the service includes a simple online purchase facility, with a special discount of 20% off the normal hard-copy price solely for A+ members.

A+ Members can log in with their individual member number and password

We've upped the standard again

This service has recently been upgraded and now includes:

  • Copy and paste rights
    • Copy and paste up to 25% of a Standard into your own internal documents such as WHS and HR documents, policies, projects, training and procedure guides. 
  • 10 hour download time
    • When you download a Standard to your computer you will now be able to temporarily save the document for 10 hours before the document ‘times out’ (this previously happened after 3 hours). 
      Remember, you can always download the document again once it times out.
  • Access to LexConnect
    • LexConnect will provide a list of all Australian legislation that the Standard is referenced in, including where in the legislation it is referenced.
    • It will also provide a list of other Australian Standards referenced in that particular legislation.
    • LexConnect will also provide you with direct access to the actual legislation if you wish to view it in more detail.
    • View the Quick Reference Guide to LexConnect
  • Access to CodeConnect 
    • CodeConnect will provide a list of all Australian Codes of Practice that the Standard is referenced in, including where in the Code it is referenced.
    • It will also provide a list of other Australian Standards referenced in that particular Code of Practice.
    • View the Quick Reference Guide to CodeConnect

Limits to access

There is a login time limit of 30 minutes. If that lapses, you’re free to log in again. The only real restriction with this service is the inability to keep or hold files – access to files now last for 10 hours on your computer before you’ll have to download them again.
