Why is improved compliance important? In the new version they are mandated for compliance. The changes to the Standard were designed to deliver two major benefits to users: What options and benefits does the change to the Standard offer specifiers in terms of design? Local technical expertise available to assist application – a phone call away.
Designs for low temperature applications L20 and L40 can be done using Australian Standards. Increased range of through-thickness testing options Allows specifiers to utilise a higher level Nzss of through-thickness testing than was available with the previous version of the Standard, for applications requiring welded joints with high nzd.
Steel products comply with all aspects of the Standard – a BlueScope Steel product is always guaranteed to comply with the Standard to which it is manufactured. This provides greater confidence that the material will achieve the performance required in service. This provision has been removed from the new Standard.
Useful for when fabrication requires hot forming or the component is to be normalized. A fine-grained structure assists the material to retain strength and toughness after hot forming or normalizing. Requiring test certificates to be written in English ensures the test certificate can be checked for compliance and that there is no confusion in interpreting the results.

Steels with higher toughness levels for more critical applications can be nas. Increased range of impact testing options: Certificates dating back to are available online for uncoated steel.
Where this is not done the plate tested may not meet the requirements of the Standard.
BlueScope can guarantee that BlueScope manufactured steel made to the previous Standard, yet still within distribution supply chains, will comply with the new Standard.
Increases the range of service temperatures that can be xs Increases the minimum impact energy that be specified.

Options Benefit Increased range of impact testing options: Not 36678 steel products are created equal, and the BlueScope brand is the best way to ensure high quality and industry-compliant products. When you specify BlueScope steel you can be confident that you get the quality you have specified, and not potentially non-compliant materials that put you at risk.
The Australian Pressure Vessel Standard AS has undergone a major revision which nza resulted in significant changes. Increases the range of service temperatures that can be specified Increases the minimum impact energy that be specified Designs for low temperature applications L20 and L40 can be done using Australian Standards. The test certificate is an important reference document that reports on all elements relating to the applicable Australian Standard.
Requiring the producing mill be listed on the test certificate allows you to assess the bona-fides of the material. This simplifies technical specifications and preparations of drawings.
Changes to the AS/NZS Standard (Structural Steel) – BlueScope Steel
Buyer Beware BlueScope can guarantee that BlueScope manufactured steel made to the previous Standard, yet still within distribution supply chains, will comply with the new Standard. Mandating a wider range of requirements on test certificates Requiring test certificates to be written in English ensures the test certificate can be checked for compliance and that there is no confusion sa interpreting the results.
This includes correct compliance information being noted on both plate stencils and test certificates, and for further assurance, ACRS Certification. BlueScope Steel documents a full suite of critical properties that impact post processing activities such as welding and galvanizing.
Allows specifiers to utilise a higher level Z35 of through-thickness testing than was available with the previous version of the Standard, for applications requiring welded joints with high restraint.
Changes to the Standard simply reflect what has been best practice at BlueScope Steel for several years.
For test results to be meaningful it is important that the laboratory understands the relevant standards on nzw to prepare test specimens and perform the tests. Caution should be exercised if specifiers and purchasers are being offered new product to AS Improved compliance to the Standard gives the specifier and purchaser confidence that the material obtained will perform as intended in the design and use phases of the project.
