Australian Adventure Activity Standard (AAS)
Outdoors NSW is excited to be a member of the Steering Committee for the creation of Australian Adventure Activity Standards. The project is supported by CASRO, State and Territory Governments and the outdoor community in Australia.
The AAS for 21 activities will be developed over a three year period. The process is underway and includes extensive consultation with the outdoor community in Australia.
The new Australian AAS will provide a best practice framework for safe and responsible planning and delivery of a wide range of outdoor adventure activities throughout Australia.
This new national approach will make it easier for activity providers to operate in multiple jurisdictions, improve professional portability, and raise safety standards for participants.
As part of this initiative NSW’s 10 AAS have been streamlined and combined into the 22 Australian Activity Standards which will improve community and customer outdoor experiences.
These standards will be freely available here for reference and download once available.
NSW AAS will remain current until such time as the Australian AAS for that activity is finalised.
