Recently there have been two replacement Standards published that are used in Masterspec sections, however neither has any major affect on the text within the sections.
AS/NZS 3008.1.2:2017 - Electrical installations - Selection of cables - Cables for alternating voltages up to and including 0.6/1 kV - Typical New Zealand conditions
AS/NZS 3100:2017 - Approval and test specification - General requirements for electrical equipment
AS/NZS 3100:2017 sets out general safety requirements related to, equipment (including fittings, accessories, appliances and apparatus) of classes and types for electrical installations in buildings. (Except for appliance to AS/NZS 60335.1 or part 2, except where an approval and test specification refers to this standard) This new standard will supersede AS/NZS 3100:2009 from 13 January 2019.
