The format of the standards is now under review.
The department sought feedback on the format of the ASEL from a wide range of ASEL users via a survey that ran from 8 July 2019 to 9 August 2019. The survey asked users to identify issues with the format of ASEL and suggest improvements for consideration in future ASEL formats.
The survey results helped us develop two new format options for the ASEL.
The department sought feedback on the two new format options for the ASEL via Have Your Say from 16 September 2019 to 27 September 2019.
Feedback on the new ASEL format is now being considered for the next version of the standards. The next version of ASEL, incorporating recommendations from the review, will be published in 2020.
