My first stop was the old AUSTEL site, where there were enough clues for
me to realise that the ACA (Australian Communications Authority) is its
successor. Unfortunately their web site isn't too clear so after some
email to email@example.com here is what I found:
Soheil Derakhshan (SDerakhs@nospam.aca.gov.au) told me that AUSTEL technical
standard 030-1997 (TS030)listed the requirements for CND capable equipment
but that the new telecommunications act caused a review of all their
standards and TS030 was considered "beyond the standards making heads of
power of the new act" and so it wasn't renewed. Use TS030 as a guide and
with some amount of salt.
You can purchase TS030 from Standards Australia <www.standards.com.au> but
CND standards are only documented by the carriers. Two contacts she gave
me were Merv Sewell of Telstra (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mike
Elsegood of Optus (email@example.com).
If you just want general information on CND then the Consumer Report
(Attachment A) has details about CND in Australia. You can get that off
the ACA's website <www.aca.gov.au>. From what I hear ACIF
<www.acif.org.au> is working to develop a definitive standard on CND in
Australia and may have drafts available.
