    Posted: 16 April 2014 at 9:41am
Standards Australia is now accepting comments from the public on the 9 electric vehicle standards drafts that it has just released.

http://www.fullyloaded.com.au/news/industry/1404/electric-vehicle-draft-standards-released/

The standards relate to electric vehicle vocabulary, occupant safety, and recharging infrastructure.

Of particular importance are the standards relating to charging infrastructure, as there are currently multiple electric vehicle recharging methods that are not necessarily compatible.

"These standards are absolutely fundamental to the development of the electric vehicle industry in Australia," Standards Australia General Manager Operations Adrian O’Connel says.

Of the 9 standards, many are safety-related, and pertain to standards for protecting users against electric shock.

Standards Australia says that the drafts are adopted from standards developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO).

"These standards are the product of a concerted effort by Standards Australia and its stakeholders to ensure that electric vehicles in Australia benefit from international best practice," O’Connel adds.

In developing the drafts, Standards Australia has undergone a consulting process with the electric vehicle industry, which began back in 2011.

"These new standards break new ground for an industry which is still, in this country at least, very much in its infancy," O’Connell adds.

The standards will be open for public comment until May 8.

Any tips on how to download them?
The link takes me to a list of standards open for public comment. I click on "download draft" and it takes me to SAI Global. I made an account with SAI Global because it asked me to.
Once in SAI Global I get a search screen. I can't seem to find the draft documents though. For example I search for "SA TR ISO 8713" but it returns no results. Searching for "8713" gives only current or superseded documents, even if I choose "draft" as the publication type.

The term "DRAFT" is more related to the process of adoption/ratification of these international documents into Standards Australia library. The proposed standards are existing published documents from ISO/IEC working groups.

AEVA has had representation at all the steering group meetings (via me) since 2011. There are a number of our corporate members who have been part of the process.

Within the next 6 months there is an objective to adopt the relevant international EV standards directly where parties have been engaged and see consensus. Care has been made to avoid reinventing the wheel, or adopting a standard that would be detrimental to the Australian market. This comment is more my personal observation than a mandate.

There are a few important points:
1. Comments made elsewhere on this forum that the Australian 240v 10/15A GPO would be removed is not the case. Those with EV's know how important it is to have these available when needed at locations other than your typical destination (home/office/etc).
2. The draft documents are not attempting to block DIY conversions.
3. Where possible ease the implementation of infrastructure and in brace the same specification that both the charging equipment suppliers and OEM vehicle manufacturers need to adopt in other markets.

Thanks Jaron, the pace is glacial, but that's probably a good thing.

Very pleasing to see they are moving ahead with some sort of charging standard. I look forward to a time where ChaDeMo/Combo kits can be installed into conversions so they can make use of the DC fast charging facilities of the future.

Hi Jaron,

Any hints as to what we might object to? E.g. Have they done anything dumb or really dumb that we should object to loudly and in great number? Anything they are wavering on and could be pushed in the right direction?

Cheers,
Woody

The "drafts" are in fact the free downloadable files linked by Richo, but they are fairly useless. They only contain a reference to the existing IEC or ISO standard that is proposed for adoption, and information on how to comment. The number of the existing standard can be obtained more easily by removing the "AS" or "SA" from those listed above. If you want to read them you'll have to pay money. About $60 each or about $500 total. OOTQ for me.

It would have been nice to be told this earlier. I wonder how many others wasted their time downloading these "drafts".

[Edit: Added "or 'SA'"]

I think this might be something that the AEVA should purchase for its members - what do you guys think?

Will it have any effect on the existing NCOP 14 design standards?
