    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements and recommendations for the safe storage and handling of corrosive substances, i.e. substances that meet the Class 8 classification criteria of the ADG Code.
    It also applies to other dangerous goods that are assigned a Class 8 subsidiary risk by the ADG Code, except where they are of Class 2 or where more stringent requirements apply under another relevant Australian Standard or applicable regulation.
    This Standard provides minimum acceptable safety requirements for storage facilities, operating procedures, emergency planning and fire protection. It also provides technical guidance that may assist in the storage and handling of corrosive substances in accordance with the risk management requirements of NOHSC:1015 and legislation that draws on that document.
    NOTE: A discussion of the hazards presented by corrosive substances is provided in Appendix A.
