As/nzs5601 parts 1 & 2
« on: October 23, 2015, 06:04:20 PM »
Why is this so much cheaper to buy in Australia?  Has anyone bought them from Oz instead of here?

Its amazing eh mate...you should be given a free copy when you get your first license, then a free replacement should you ever need a one. And any amendments should then be sent out to glue in, for all license holders. All this should be subsidised by the government.

Isn't it all about getting the info out there so its all done safe and well.... but its treated like some secret black art by some, with the knowledge to be sold and not shared.

I was at a standards meeting about 10 years ago, I asked why the standards weren't written in laymen's terms and not in a type of legalese that was a bit confusing.....

The guy running it said "we don't won't just anyone off the street to be able to understand it".....Well....um er ....that's where most of us come from....


The Board also said helping people BEFORE mistakes were made wasn't economically viable.....I guess there must be more money in investigating and finding people to blame AFTER there is an incident.....


The powers that be should assist the trades to do their job to the best of their ability, and foot the bill....most of the everyday plumbers I know.... want to do the right thing and do it properly, the ones I have met who don't care and are dangerous are the ones connected who get it all handed to them in their little clubs...it is totally f****ed up.





You can't choose who you are.....but you are the sum of your choices.......

come to think of it this is available to all tradesmen for nthing through the PGDB website when you login is it not? login and click on the standards link?

No its not free and it is not even discounted. $576 for a set. How many have actually purchased them? It would be interesting to know how many gasfitters there are versus how many new regs sold.

I stand corrected. If you go toStandards via the link on the PGDB main page, you have to pay, but if you log in you can download them for free. This old dog learned something.

The standards off the PGDB site, I think this has already paid for by us, apparently out of our fee's they paid a group fee of 15k I think from memory (might be wrong)....so they are free ....if you already paid so to speak.

You can download and print them yourself for free but you cant get a preprinted book without the $576 as far as I can tell

Its not just 5601 either - you can have a look at your library to see what else is there - download em all keep em on file to refer to when ever you like....     you can request to have others added as well, but none I have requested have ever been added...

I have found that they cant be printed, which is a PIA. And it doesnt explain why the same thing is so much cheaper over in Oz.

"FLUEING
 Flue terminals are not to be located within
300mm of an opening (e.g. window), ventilator
or hatch (clause 8.4.1)."

Its relevant to my case Robbo, if 300mm is even ok now according to Aussie standards AND British Standards.....and the only charge on me is for 540mm.....its a bit frustrating for me, that's all mate
