References, guidelines and research

The RCA Forum wants to identify best practice, particularly where local circumstances might necessitate variation from currently accepted best practice or identify potential improvement.  Any proposal to include new, or major changes to currrent best practice reference documents in the Register of Network Standards and Guidelines will be notified to users and posted on this page.  Feedback from members is sought on any new or changed documents out for consultation and comment.

Feedback should be provided back to the Research and Guidelines Steering Group.  The Group will consider the feedback.  If necessary, it will report to a meeting of the RCA Forum, but otherwise it will report with a recommendation to the Ratification Group on adoption of the proposal as a Local Status document.

One of the objectives of these pages is to promulgate and publicise research to encourage wider adoption of research recommendations and the application of findings.  This includes a summary of recent NZTA research reports and other presentations and a short list of currently active research projects and recent projects completed as part of post-graduate or doctoral theses at Canterbury and Auckland Universities.  

The RCA Forum is also supporting or steering research through its Research and Guidelines Steering Group and working groups.  As well as long-established working groups, such as the National Stock Effluent Working Group or the Stormwater Group, new working groups are being established as issues arise.  More >>
