Outdoor recreation symbols Standard – new amendment


Amendment 1:2012 to NZS 8603:2005 Design and application of outdoor recreation symbols has been published.

Amendment 1 will enable local authorities and the Department of Conservation to manage the environmental, social, and economic impacts of freedom camping in their regions and across the country with a distinctive new symbol.

Figure A60 has been amended to describe the symbol as a personal water-craft and not jet-ski as depicted in the current Standard.

The amendment aligns with AS/NZS 2416.1:2010 and ISO 20712-1:2008.
