How to get applicable electrical Standards free

As an electrical worker with a practicing licence you have access to all the applicable electrical Standards from Standards NZ via the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB).

Having the right Standards, beyond AS/NZS3000 and understanding their importance before undertaking electrical work to which specific standards apply is important. There are both compliance and serious cost implications with not following the guidance, requirements, or recommendation contained in these specific Standards.

The EWRB has made access to common electrical Standards free as PDF downloads.

To access electrical Standards follow these steps:
  1. Go to the EWRB’s website and log in with your REAL ME login password.
  2. Once logged in, on the top navigation tab go to Online Store
  3. To the right side of the page you will see menu, at the bottom is “External Links”, below that is Standards New Zealand. Click on that and you will link to the Standards Website and be logged in as a EWRB registered user.
  4. You can now search for Standards and if applicable download as PDF
Note: There is only limited functionality to print hard copies of standards.
