Historical Significance: This was the first and only standard for contact lenses written and published in Australia. The Australian Optometrical Association, The University of NSW Optometry Department and the Victorian College of Optometry were participants in writing the Standard. It is now withdrawn. A new draft standard DR 03179 CP was prepared in 2003 but this was superseded by adoption by Australia of an international ISO standard AS ISO 14534-2003 which specifies safety and performance requirements for contact lenses, contact lens care products and other accessories for contact lenses.
