As noted in our e-bulletin of 15 January, consultation on HARPS Standard Version 2.0 was extended (as a result of requests by ABGC and others) and will now close on 31 January. ABGC encourages members to access relevant documents here and complete the “Version 2 Comments Form” and submit this form directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is changing?
You can find a summary of proposed changes between Version 1 and Version 2 of the HARPS standard, here. We recommend you read this document carefully. In addition, the HARPS Standard Version 2.0 Guidance document provides critical detail for your information or feedback.
ABGC is developing a submission to Hort Innovation – which maintains oversight and ownership of the HARPS scheme – to discuss the industry feedback we have received, including on the new management structure involving One Direction ANZ, which has taken over operational management of the scheme.
As your industry development organisation, we will formally submit feedback received from Members prior to the consultation period deadline of 31 Jan. Therefore, we encourage you to submit your feedback directly to HARPS and/or contact Jim Pekin, ABGC with your views: 07 3278 4786 or email@example.com
