Risk management and gas installation standards
Risk management and gas installation standards offered in sets
Keeping up to date with the latest industry developments is essential. To make it easier, we've brought together the latest publications covering risk management guidelines and gas installations in line with good practice. This is a new service Standards New Zealand is offering by bringing together the latest publications covering specific industries.
There are two sets currently on offer:
The first set contains AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 Risk management – Principles and guidelines and SA/SNZ HB 436:2013 Risk management guidelines – Companion to AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009.
AS/NZS ISO 3000:2009 provides principles and generic guidelines on risk management. The standard can be used by any public, private, or community enterprise, association, group or individual, and is not specific to any industry or sector. It can be applied throughout the life of an organisation, and to a wide range of activities, including strategies and decisions, operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services and assets. The Handbook provides guidance on the implementation of AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009.
The second set consists of Parts 1 and 2 of AS/NZS 5601:2013 Gas installations.
The AS/NZS 5601 Series specifies requirements and a means of compliance for the design, installation, and commissioning of gas installations (including caravans and boats for non-propulsive purposes) that are associated with use or intended use of fuel gases such as natural gas, LP Gas, biogas or manufactured gas.
Part 1 provides the mandatory requirements and means of compliance for the design, installation, and commissioning of gas installations associated with the use or intended use of fuel gases such as natural gas, LP Gas, or biogas.
Part 2 provides essential requirements and deemed-to-comply solutions, to promote uniform standards of gas installation and to provide a stand-alone standard for LP Gas installations in caravans and boats for non-propulsive purposes.
Both sets of standards can be purchased from Standards New Zealand www.standards.co.nz
