    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out basic requirements and good practice for the design, materials, manufacture, examination,testing, installation, conformity assessment, commissioning, operation, inspection, maintenance, repair, alteration and disposal of pressure equipment (boilers, pressure vessels and pressure piping) but excluding gas cylinders. Includes detailed requirements for various pressure equipment by direct reference to a range of Australian, New Zealand and other Standards.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard is a ‘parent’ document for use by the pressure equipment industry in Australia and New Zealand. It covers the design, materials, manufacture, examination, testing, installation, conformity assessment, commissioning, operation, inspection, maintenance, repair, alteration and disposal of pressure equipment (boilers, pressure vessels and pressure piping), but excluding gas cylinders and other equipment as set out in Appendix A.This Standard specifies detailed requirements for various pressure equipment by direct reference to a range of Australian, New Zealand and other Standards.This Standard also sets out general administrative and interpretation provisions which apply to the specified Standards.NOTES:1 Appendix D contains New Zealand regulatory matters.2 Appendix F contains a comparison of pressure equipment Standards.
