New Plumbing Code released
Standards Australia (SA) has released the new Plumbing Code. AS/NZS 3500:2018 Plumbing and drainage Parts 1–4 have been published following extensive work by industry, technical experts, regulators and consumers to ensure the code addresses the needs of the broader community.
Published as part of the AS/NZS 3500, the release aligns with the new three-year cycle of the National Construction Code, which SA says enables them to be primary reference documents in the National Construction Code, and serve as nationally applicable standards guiding the plumbing sector in each state and territory.
Newly published standards include:
AS/NZS 3500.1:2018, Plumbing and drainage Part 1: Water services
AS/NZS 3500.2:2018, Plumbing and drainage Part 2: Sanitary plumbing and drainage
AS/NZS 3500.3:2018, Plumbing and drainage Part 3: Stormwater drainage
AS/NZS 3500.4:2018, Plumbing and drainage Part 4: Heated water services
