Presentation: AS/NZS 1252 High strength bolts with associated nuts - Melbourne

Important design and procurement updates you must know

With all structural bolts now imported from overseas, increased pressure is being applied to Engineers to ensure that they are structurally safe! The responsibility of each link in the supply chain is now well defined.

This evening presentation is designed to assist you to manage risk by improving procurement and compliance outcomes for these safety critical products.

If you are an engineer, a builder, a procurer, a testing authority or certification agency, you need to come along, inform yourself and be part of the journey towards improved compliance outcomes!

The new Standard now comes in two parts:

  • Part 1: Product conformity - similar in intent to the previous version but with a list of improvements (see below)
  • Part 2: Verification testing - new and provides procurers the option to specifically call up a suite of specific testing to ensure the imported products landed in Australia are compliant with Part 1.

The significant improvements to the Standard include:

  • Strengthening of normative requirements around testing and product conformity
  • A new section on performance requirements of the bolt assembly and normative requirement for ‘assembly testing’
  • A new EN 14399-3 Type HR property class 8.8 ‘alternative assembly type’
  • A new EN 14399-3 Type HR property class 10.9 ‘additional assembly type’
  • New definition of performance requirements for bolts suitable for torque-controlled tensioning
  • The new Part 2: Verification testing, which finally provides procurers with a unified transparent testing regime to ensure product compliance.

Time: Registrations at 5.30 pm for 6.00 pm start and 7.30 pm finish.
