Surveyors carrying out cadastral surveys are required to locate or re-establish existing boundaries or rights before determining new boundaries and rights. To do this, surveyors need to be able to readily access information from the cadastre. Cadastral survey data is also needed for purposes other than cadastral surveys.

This standard came into effect at the same time as the Rules for Cadastral Survey 2010, on 24 May 2010.

This standard describes the requirements for:

  • integrating cadastral surveys into the cadastre, including topological, spatial relationship, accuracy, and timeliness requirements

  • the retention and maintenance of cadastral survey records

  • recording cadastral actions and the status of parcels in the cadastre

  • providing access to cadastral survey data particularly for the purpose of locating and defining cadastral boundaries and carrying out audits.

This standard is intended for use by Toitū Te Whenua staff acting for the Chief Executive under section 9 of the Cadastral Survey Act 2002.
