A brief update on the project.

All of these TWG have now started work. Details of who is on the TWG can be found at australianaas.org.au/working-groups/members/
Current public consultation

Part I – Core standard
The Core standard public consultation was completed in Sept 2016. The TWG has since been working on addressing feedback provided. The Core standard is now at “practical completion” with only a few remaining elements to finish. The final version should be ready in the next few months.
Next TWG to be formed
The process for establishing the next activity TWG will start in a few months time. What activities will be next is yet to be finalised. It will generally follow the sequence outlined in previous posts.
