Future Standards – the Australian Adventure Activity Standards

The WA Adventure Activity Standards are one tool supporting safety in the outdoors in WA. Outdoors WA is currently supporting a project underway to align all state Adventure Activity Standards into Australian Adventure Activity Standards. Each state will maintain their own standards until these national standards are completed. More details on the Australian AAS can be found at http://australianaas.org.au/
