APIQ Standards Revision Taking Effect April 2017

Each Year the APIQtick13x14® Standards and Performance Indicators are reviewed by stakeholders, including producers of all sizes and types of production, with opportunities for improvement identified and changes drafted for industry review.  Once the review process is completed and improvements approved by the APL Board, they are presented to industry Delegates before being released to industry.  Revised and Approved Standards (Version 4.2 1/2017) will be taking effect on 1 April 2017 as a result of the 2016 review.

Each year the APIQtick13x14® Standards and Performance Indicators are reviewed by stakeholders, including producers of all sizes and types of production, with opportunities for improvement identified and changes drafted for industry review. Once the review process is completed and improvements approved by the APL Board, they’re presented to industry Delegates before being released to industry. APIQ Management thanks all stakeholders that participated in the recently completed review process! 

The revised and approved Standards Manual (Version 4.2 1/2017) is attached FYI along with a Standards Amendment Table for Version 4.2 1/2017 which highlights significant changes, reasons for change and how to comply.  Minor changes that improve the language but don’t change the intent of a Standard or Performance Indicator have been made but are not shown in the table.

Version 4.2 1/2017 takes effect 1 April 2017 and Auditors will audit to Version 4.2 1/2017 from this date. This delay gives you time to become familiar with the changes and to assess and make changes to your systems, if needed, before this date.

Please note that Standard 6.1, regarding licences and/or permits to operate, is under further review. You’ll be advised of changes to 6.1 once they’ve been agreed and approved.
