             (1)  This section applies if:

                     (a)  a kind of item meets the requirements of more than 1 applicable standard; but

                     (b)  the applicable standards are inconsistent with each other.

             (2)  The supplier of the item must:

                     (a)  choose the standard that the supplier will use as the applicable standard; and

                     (b)  prepare a statement that:

                              (i)  sets out which provisions of the standards are inconsistent; and

                             (ii)  identifies the standard that the supplier has chosen as the applicable standard; and

                     (c)  keep the statement as part of the compliance records for the kind of item.

             (3)  After the supplier prepares the statement:

                     (a)  the standard chosen by the supplier is taken to be an applicable standard for the kind of item; and

                     (b)  the standard with which that standard is inconsistent is taken not to be an applicable standard for the kind of item.

             (4)  The supplier is not permitted to revoke or change the choice of a standard while the chosen standard is in force.

1.8  Compliance with replacement standard before expiry of old standard

             (1)  This section applies in relation to an item mentioned in a category in Part 2 of Schedule 1 if:

                     (a)  a technical standard (the old standard) mentioned in column 3 of that category has an expiry date listed for that standard in column 3 of Table 1.1 in Schedule 1; and

                     (b)  another technical standard (the replacement standard) mentioned in column 3 of that category is a replacement standard for the old standard; and

                     (c)  at the time when the item was first manufactured or imported, both the old standard and the replacement standard would, apart from this section, have been applicable standards for the item.

Note 1:       Under subclause 1(3) of Part 1 of Schedule 1, if an expiry date for an old standard has passed, a reference to that standard in Part 2 is to be ignored so that the old standard is no longer applicable for the item.

Note 2:       To find out if a technical standard has been replaced by a replacement standard, consult the table of technical standards in Part 1 of Schedule 1.

             (2)  The supplier of the item must ensure that the item complies with either the old standard or the replacement standard.

             (3)  If the item complies with the old standard, the supplier may, at any time while the replacement standard is in force, have the item tested against the replacement standard for compliance with that standard.

             (4)  If the supplier has the item tested against the replacement standard under subsection (3), the supplier must complete a new declaration of conformity showing that the item complies with the replacement standard.

             (5)  Whichever standard the item complies with is taken to be the applicable standard for the item when it was first manufactured or imported, and the other standard is taken not to be the applicable standard for the item at that time.
