Title Mutual recognition legislation: End-user protection levels for occupational protective footwear may be less than the Australian Standard
Bibliographic information Feb. 1997, Vol.13, No.1, p.27-32. 5 ref.
Abstract Mutual recognition legislation enables a manufacturer or importer of occupational protective footwear to enter the marketplace through a participant jurisdiction and then legally trade that footwear in all other participating jurisdictions. Since the Australian standard for protective footwear (AS/NZS 2210) is not mandatory for the sale of this footwear throughout Australia, end-user protection levels can be below those required by the standard. It is recommended that the standard be enacted as a mandatory safety standard in all Australian jurisdictions.
