Specifies criteria for determining the hazard levels of various types of pressure equipment to AS/NZS 1200. It also classifies fluids for use in pressure equipment.
This Standard is intended to be used in the design, manufacture, inspection, conformity assessment, use and ultimate disposal of pressure equipment.
The hazard levels determined by this Standard are minimum values and may need in certain cases to be increased.
NOTE: The National Standard for Plant, NOHSC:1010 (1994), and subsequent State and Territory regulations usually reference this Standard (or AS 3920.1) and require design registration or notification for boilers and pressure vessels of hazard levels A, B, C and D and registration of such equipment with hazard levels A, B or C.
