September 2023 Library Update - Australian Standards
September 2023 Library Update - Australian Standards
The myBIG library is constantly growing with new content.
From Australian Standards to legislation, codes of practice to technical specifications, and everything in between, myBIG holds the most current Building and Construction industry resources.
Two new sets of Australian Standards, for Gasfitters and Refrigeration Technicians, have been added to myBIG for September 2023.
The Gasfitters set provides essential information relating to gas installations.
Areas covered include the design, installation, and commissioning of commercial, industrial, and domestic gas appliances. Also covered is the servicing of Type A gas appliances.
The Gasfitters set includes both parts of AS/NZS 5601, which is a key standard for gas installations in Australia and New Zealand:
AS/NZS 5601.1:2022 Gas installations, Part 1: General installations, and
AS/NZS 5601.2:2020 Gas installations, Part 2: LP Gas installations in caravans and boats for non-propulsive purposes
The set also includes standards about the assessment of explosive atmospheres, especially where gas or vapour hazards can occur, and also new information about hydrogen.
Sets out requirements and safety principles relating to the design, installation, and operation of industrial appliances that involve the combustion of gas or liquid fuel, or other fuel in air suspension, or the generation of combustible vapours in such appliances.
Specifies materials, design, construction, installation, testing and maintenance requirements for below ground plastics gas distribution networks to be used in conjunction with AS/NZS 4645.1, for the distribution of fuel gas suitable for domestic, commercial or industrial uses.
Specifies requirements and means of conformance for the design, installation and commissioning of LP Gas installations in caravans and boats for non-propulsive purposes.
AS/NZS IEC 60079.10.1:2022 adopts IEC 60079 10 1:2020, which specify requirements for the classification of areas where flammable gas or vapour hazards may arise and may then be used as a basis to support the proper design, construction, operation and maintenance of equipment for use in hazardous areas.
AS/NZS IEC 60079.10.1:2022 Sup 1:2022 Explosive atmospheres, Part 10.1: Classification of areas - Explosive gas atmospheres - Commentary (Supplement 1 to AS/NZS IEC 60079.10.1:2022)
AS/NZS IEC 60079.10.1:2022 Sup 1:2022 provides commentary and additional information to support the application of AS/NZS IEC 60079.10.1:2022.
AS 3814:2018 Industrial and commercial gas-fired appliances
Specifies the uniform minimum requirements for the design, construction and safe operation of Type B appliances that are intended for use with town gas, natural gas, simulated natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas and tempered liquefied petroleum gas or any combination of these gases either together or with other fuels.
AS 4041-2006 Pressure piping
Specifies minimum requirements for the materials, design, fabrication, testing, inspection, reports and pre-commissioning of piping subject to internal or external pressure.
AS/NZS 5601.1:2022 Gas installations, Part 1: General installations
Sets out requirements and means of conformance for the design, installation and commissioning of gas installations that are associated with the use or intended use of fuel gases such as natural gas, LP Gas, or biogas.
Sets out requirements and recommendations for the safe storage and handling of LP Gas, in cylinders and bulk tanks.
The objective of this Standard is to specify essential requirements and basic standards for the delivery of Type A gas appliance servicing, repair, testing and conversion from one gas type to another.
The Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technicians set provides in-depth guidance for the most common types of work undertaken in the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) industry.
Areas covered include specifying, designing and installing RAC equipment; also included are servicing and repairing, and end-of-life decommissioning of RAC equipment.
All of the Standards in this set are referenced in Section 135 of the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995 (Cth).
Licensed refrigeration technicians are required to comply with these standards as part of the terms of their licence.
Specifies requirements for safety and environmental aspects in relation to operation, maintenance and repair of refrigerating systems and the recovery, reuse and disposal of all types of refrigerant, refrigerant oil, heat transfer fluid, refrigerating system and part thereof.
Specifies a simple means of referring to common refrigerants instead of using the chemical name, formula, or trade name. It also establishes a uniform system to be used in assigning the proper reference number and classification to refrigerants; the system for refrigerant classification is defined and physical data of common refrigerants listed.
This Standard provides an unambiguous system for assigning designations to refrigerants. It also establishes a system for assigning a safety classification to refrigerants based on toxicity and flammability data, and provides a means of determining the refrigerant concentration limit.
AS/NZS 5149.1:2016 Refrigerating systems and heat pumps - Safety and environmental requirements, Part 1: Definitions, classification and selection criteria (ISO 5149-1:2014, MOD)
Specifies the requirements for the safety of persons and property, provides guidance for the protection of the environment, and establishes procedures for the operation, maintenance, and repair of refrigerating systems and the recovery of refrigerants.
Applicable to the design, construction, and installation of refrigerating systems, including piping, components, materials, and ancillary equipment directly associated with such systems.
