MITO New Zealand Incorporated (MITO) has completed the revision of the unit standards listed above.


Date new versions published                                                               August 2018


Planned review date                                                                              December 2021




The revision has been undertaken to extend the last date for assessment of previous versions of the standards, to enable a large cohort of learner results for existing gas industry programmes to be reported.  This extension is to ensure learners are not disadvantaged as a result of existing programmes not being updated during the transition to programmes towards the New Zealand qualifications.


There is no change to the planned review date of 31 December 2021 for each of the standards.


Main changes


·      The last date for assessment of the superseded versions of the standards was extended from 31 December 2018 to 31 December 2020.
