Definitions
Workplace procedures refer to the verbal or documented procedures for performing
work activities and include health and safety, operational, environmental, and quality
management requirements. They may refer to manuals, manufacturer's
specifications, codes of practice, or policy statements.
Product, style or garment specifications are all terms for the same document.
The terminology varies between workplaces but they all refer to the documentation
that accompanies each manufacturing order. This documentation sets out the
material to be used for the garment, the size range for manufacturing, the product
assembly sequence, product finishing procedures and the component specifications.

Please note
Providers must be 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 accredited by NZQA before they can register
credits from assessment against unit standards.
Accredited providers and Industry Training Organisations assessing against unit standards
must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.
