New Standards

  • AS 3580.5.1-2011 Methods for sampling and analysis of ambient air – Determination of oxides of nitrogen – Direct-reading instrumental method
    Sets out a method for the determination of the concentration of oxides of nitrogen in ambient air. The method is applicable to ambient air containing oxides of nitrogen at a concentration of less than 1 p.p.m. by volume (less than 1 mL/m(sup)3(/sup)). Nitric oxide (NO) and total oxides of nitrogen (NO(sub)x(/sub)) may be measured.
    Supersedes AS 3580.5.1-1993
  • AS 3580.6.1-2011 Methods for sampling and analysis of ambient air – Determination of ozone – Direct-reading instrumental method
    Sets out a direct-reading instrumental method for the determination of ozone in ambient air in the concentration range 0 to 0.5 ppm by volume.
    Supersedes AS 3580.6.1-1990
  • AS 3580.7.1-2011 Methods for sampling and analysis of ambient air – Determination of carbon monoxide – Direct-reading instrumental method
    Sets out a method for the determination of carbon monoxide in ambient air to a concentration of 600 mg/m(sup)3(/sup) using a direct-reading instrument. The requirements for direct-reading instruments specified in the Standard were derived from USEPA Air Regulations Pollution Control Guide, Part 53: Ambient air monitoring reference and equivalent methods, Section 8183, Subpart B: Procedures for testing performance characteristics of automated methods.
    Supersedes AS 3580.7.1-1992
  • AS 3580.14-2011 Methods for sampling and analysis of ambient air – Meteorological monitoring for ambient air quality monitoring applications
    Sets out methods for the collection of meteorological data for use in ambient air quality monitoring and modelling applications.
    Supersedes AS 2923-1987
  • AS 4599.1-2011 Digital television – Terrestrial broadcasting – Characteristics of digital terrestrial television transmissions
    Provides television receiver manufacturers and broadcasters with the technical specification for the Australian digital terrestrial television transmission system.
    Supersedes AS 4599.1-2007
  • RUL FP.1-2011 Rulings to fire protection Standards – Degrees of protection
    Ruling to Clause 13.3.1 of AS 7240.2-2004.
