If you are interested in the distribution and therefore pricing of Australian Standards, you can comment on a discussion paper here, until29/7/2019:
Here is some background:
I went to one of the "public consultations" about distribution (and so price) of Australian Standards.
A General Manager from Standards Australia told us that (paraphrased) there's no point allowing the public to access standards, because they wouldn't understand them. He used the example of Diesel engines for boats - the public wouldn't understand how an engine works so they shouldn't be reading the standards about them.
Also he used the metaphor that standards are "tools of trade", "like a surgeon's scalpel" and should not be available to the public because just being able to read the electrical or gasfitting rules would "embolden" people to do wiring and gasfitting work without a license. Fortunately the fellow from Standards Australia does not influence distribution of scalpels - I find that a Swann-Morton handle with a 10A blade, available at any good artists' shop, is very handy for modifying prototype circuit boards. And in spite of posessing this marvel of sharpness, it never occurred to me to test my beginner's luck and have a go at some amateur surgery.
(By the same logic, we could fix the problem of people driving cars without a license, by putting the road rules behind a very expensive paywall, so people without a license don't get "emboldened" to drive cars.)
The WA parliament's delegated legislation committee said: "We believe that universal free access to Australian Standards should be a right enjoyed by the Australian people, by businesses, by governments, by representative groups and by academic institutions.? https://t.co/xXtzpVo0Il If you look up the interview transcripts from that investigation they are quite revealing also.
I'm not sure that putting in a submission will have much effect, but at least that part of their website is free of charge!
