These unit standards were originally designated as expiring in 2008, with the expiry date extended to 31 December 2015 in 2011 to minimise the impact on providers during the transition to New Zealand qualifications.  No new or extension of consents to assess the unit standards could be granted during the extended expiry phase.

The other 24 Level 6 and 33 Level 7 Computing unit standards will continue to expire on 31 December 2015.  Details of these standards are available in the July 2011 review summary at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/nqfdocs/summaries/2011/jul11/revsumjul11-05.html.

There is no further change to the current (those not designated as expiring through a review process) Computing standards at Level 5 and 6 at this stage.
