In February 1981, a working party was formed by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, the Faculty of Anaesthetists of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (now the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists), the Australian Association of Surgeons and the Australian Society of Anaesthetists with the inclusion of a group of co-opted members, to prepare the first manual of standards for day surgery. This manual, "Day Surgery; Report and Recommendations", was published in September 1981 and revised in 1987 and 1997. An expanded revision was completed in July 2004.
