AUS-SPEC is the essential technical resource for the life cycle management of minor infrastructure assets. As a national specification, AUS-SPEC addresses the challenges associated with inconsistencies in regulation and processes that can occur between jurisdictions. AUS-SPEC promotes standardisation and consistency in documentation across Local Government infrastructure works to increase competition, productivity and efficient use of resources.
What is AUS-SPEC?
What AUS-SPEC covers
AUS-SPEC is the national local government specification system for the life cycle management of assets. It is a joint venture between NATSPEC and IPWEA. NATSPEC manages the National Building Specification, which is owned by Government and industry bodies. AUS-SPEC is the only comprehensive Australian national specification system for local government assets that is regularly updated to reflect the latest changes in regulations and standards.
The AUS-SPEC system provides tools, technical specification templates, a framework and processes to document requirements for various asset life cycle activities.
AUS-SPEC provides a range of specifications for buildings, roadworks, urban and open spaces and public utilities. The recently released Rural Roads specification package will assist rural and remote councils in implementing improved practices across the asset life cycle.
