Australia: Standards Australia

Standards Australia established Technical Committee MB009 Human Resources and Employment in 2003.  The Committee Chair is currently vacant. There have been two Standards published between 2006 and 2015, and a small number of handbooks or guidelines.  

Australian Standard  AS 4811:2006 Employment Screening was published in July 2006.

Australian Standard  AS 5620:2015 Workforce Planning was published in October 2015. 

The development of HR standards in Australia is proceeding exceedingly slowly.

The work of this Committee should be reviewed to ensure they are providing value-for-money.
