The objective of the Technical Standard is to provide consistency in the signs and their placement across New Zealand, and to make our tsunami signage compliant with those used overseas. Compliance by CDEM Groups with this Technical Standard will not only provide a consistent approach across New Zealand, but it will also contribute to public awareness of the risks posed by tsunamis and better understanding of what should be done by communities in response to an event.
