Just had a google on helmet standards and read a wikipedia on it:
SAI Global (a profit-making arm of the Standards Australia organisation]) runs a marketing program based on the AS/NZS 2063 standard, in which manufacturers pay royalties and fees to affix a "5 ticks" certification trademark sticker on helmets.
This bumps up the price and once you add the importers and distributors profits into it it all adds up . Same helmet as what you buy overseas, just twice the price.
Do you know of any real-world examples of helmet models which have been specifically modified for AS compliance?
No specific examples here, but this article gives an excellent explanation of the whole testing process, and clearly states that helmets do undergo modification if needed for the Australian market:
