  • AS 5334-2013 Climate change adaptation for settlements and infrastructure - A risk based approach
    Provides principles and generic guidelines on the management of the risks that settlements and infrastructure face from the impacts of climate change. In particular it describes a systematic approach to planning the adaptation of settlements and infrastructure based on the risk management process given in AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009.
  • AS ISO 5349.1-2013 Mechanical vibration - Measurement and evaluation of human exposure to hand-transmitted vibration - General requirements
    Adopts ISO 5349-1:2001 to specify general requirements for measuring and reporting hand-transmitted vibration exposure in three orthogonal axes. It defines a frequency weighting and band-limiting filters to allow uniform comparison of measurements. The values obtained can be used to predict adverse effects of hand-transmitted vibration over the frequency range covered by the octave bands from 8 Hz to 1 000 Hz.
    Supersedes AS 2763-1988
  • AS ISO 5349.2-2013Mechanical vibration - Measurement and evaluation of human exposure to hand-transmitted vibration - Practical guidance for measurement at the workplace
    Adopts ISO 5349-2:2001 to provide guidelines for the measurement and evaluation of hand-transmitted vibration at the workplace in accordance with AS ISO 5349.1
    Supersedes AS 2763-1988
  • AS 5389(Int)-2013Solar heating and cooling systems - Calculation of energy consumption
    Sets out a method of evaluating the annual energy performance of solar cooling and heating systems using a combination of test results for component performance and a mathematical model to determine the standardized annual purchased energy use.
  • AS/RISSB 7450:2013Railway Operations - Railway Systems Interoperability
    Covers the following aspects of Railway Systems Interoperability.
    • All the rail system circumstances including heavy haul, high speed, suburban systems and rural/grain lines.
    • Considerations for interoperability of Rolling Stock, Infrastructure, Train Protection and Control systems and Human Resources.
    • Processes for addressing the interoperability of current and future systems, assets or processes.
    • Considerations when implementing any new or changed systems, assets or processes.
    The standard is intended to enhance the understanding of interoperability as well as to provide a methodology for considering interoperability when introducing new technology or implementing a change management process.
  • AS/RISSB 7523.1:2013 Railway Rolling Stock - Emergency Equipment - Part 1: Locomotive rolling Stock
    Describes requirements for the portable emergency equipment that shall be carried by locomotives.The main purpose of the requirements is to:
    • Define the types of portable emergency equipment to be carried by Locomotives.
    • Define the requirements for emergency equipment (where applicable).
    • Define quantities of emergency equipment.
    • Define the documentation that shall be carried relating to emergency equipment.
    • Define maintenance requirements for the emergency equipment.
    This standard applies to locomotive rolling stock operating on open access networks. Locomotive rolling stock not operating on open access networks may apply parts of this standard, based on the safe working systems in use and the operational environment. The document is relevant to the design and operation lifecycle phases of Locomotives and sets the requirements for the portable emergency equipment carried on the leading Locomotive. Operation of rolling stock in regards to network safeworking rules and route standards is not covered, nor is rolling stock used on light rail, cane railway and monorail networks. Please note that this product is available in Excel format only. The Excel format allows users to more easily edit and comply with the standard, especially when working in the field. The decision to use Excel was based on much discussion and valuable feedback from customers of RISSB Australian Standards.
