Test Procedures

On 30 June 2010 our uniform test procedures (relevant NMI V documents) were deemed to be national instrument test procedures (NITPs).

In November 2011 the NITPs were renumbered and a month later all the NITPs and Sampling and Test Procedures for Prepackaged Articles were determined.

The test report calculation sheets for NITP 5.1 and NITP 10.1 are currently being reviewed, please contact tmlicensees@measurement.gov.au if you have any enquiries regarding the use of the calculation sheets.
