Explanatory notes
Definition
Industry best practice refers to those practices which competent practitioners within the
industry recognise as current industry best practice. These may be documented in
management plans, company procedures, managers’ rules, occupational health and safety
policy, industry guidelines, codes of practice, manufacturers’ instructions, and safe working
and/or job procedures (or equivalent).
Outcomes and evidence requirements

The effects of geological features are described in terms of a given mining
method.
Range
1.2
structure, rock properties, sedimentary characteristics, coal
properties.
The properties of the various coal types are described in terms of mining

Please note
Providers must be granted consent to assess against standards (accredited) by NZQA, or
an inter-institutional body with delegated authority for quality assurance, before they can
report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading
to that assessment.
Industry Training Organisations must be granted consent to assess against standards by
NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.
Providers and Industry Training Organisations, which have been granted consent and
which are assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that
applies to those standards.
Consent requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this
standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The
AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations
wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for
tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
