Minimum Industry Standards (MISs)
The Minimum Industry Standards (MISs) is a series of industry peer-reviewed booklets that provide key knowledge for arboriculture and vegetation management workers.
The MISs can be used for training and personal development and are an excellent reference to keep on hand. Current volumes include:
The MISs are produced by Arboriculture Australia Ltd. and New Zealand Arboricultural Association in partnership with the following bodies:
The information in these booklets is sourced from technical experts and leading arboricultural researchers and practitioners from all over the world. They are ‘living’ documents that are periodically reviewed to reflect up-to-date practices adopted by the industry.
MISs aim to:
- Improve industry knowledge and skills
- Share industry knowledge
- Support training by providing an industry consensus of competency
- Support a safer industry
The MISs are designed to be a resource for training and can assist formal training operators by providing an industry consensus of competency for particular skills.
There are plans to make the MISs available electronically to further assist training purposes, as well as instructional videos and summary sheets.
