Standards Australia has published for public comment its draft revision of Australian Standard AS 4989-2006 Trampolines–Safety aspects. This consultation is part of the review of the voluntary Australian Standard.
The ACCC has been considering the case for regulation of the supply of trampolines via a mandatory safety standard. If a safety standard were to be developed, it may be based on the revised voluntary Australian Standard when it is completed. The ACCC is keen for as many stakeholders as possible to review the draft revision and, where appropriate, make comments.
If you would like to provide comments, please submit them directly to Standards Australia. Please do not send comments to the ACCC or via the Product Safety Australia website.
To access the draft revision, visit the Public Commenting section of Standards Australia's website and scroll down to download the document DR AS 4989 (Rev) Trampolines – Safety aspects.
You will need to register as a new public user to access the draft.
Comments are due online to Standards Australia by 16 July 2013.
