Standards Australia has published revised versions of four Australian Standards relating to plumbing & drainage and mechanical services.
The following three updated publications were published by Standards Australia on 14 December 2015 and replace the previous editions; 3500.4:2003, 1668.1:1998 and 1682.2:1990.

The fourth updated publication, AS/NZS 1200:2015 Pressure equipment was published on 3 December 2015 and replaces the previous edition AS/NZS 1200:2000.

The updates have been published to bring the Standards into line with the Australian Building Codes Board protocol for referenced documents and to improve the technical content.

Plumbing practitioners are required to comply with the updated editions of the standards as these now form part of the plumbing regulatory framework.

Updated Standards can be purchased from the SAI Global website.
