Best Practice Guideline for Arboriculture - 15th Nov 2010

CoP becomes BPG at AGM

The members of the New Zealand Arboricultural Association voted in favour of progressing the Code of Practice (CoP) as a Best Practice Guideline (BPG) at their Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Auckland, November 12.

This decision was based on the absence of a current workable industry document that reflected best working practice in New Zealand arboriculture.

The existing CoP [the Approved Code of Practice for Safety and Health in Tree Work Part One: Arboriculture] was published in 1994 and no longer reflects current industry practice.

The BPG which is available on the NZAA website is currently a working document. The BPG has taken directly from a draft document created and reviewed by a panel of industry experts and stakeholder representatives.

The BPG is not designed to replace the 16 year old CoP but serve as a current and industry relevant document until such time the review is complete and a new CoP can be published.
