Webcast series: Updates to AS 4100 and AS/NZS 5131

This series of webcast seminars will provide details of the recent updates to AS 4100 Steel Structures and AS/NZS 5131 Structural Steelwork Fabrication and Erection.

One of the key changes to the 2020 edition of AS 4100 is that it directly calls up AS/NZS 5131 for steel fabrication and erection. The webcast seminar series is broken into 4 parts and will be available to view on-demand via your ASI Dashboard on the dates specified.

2020 Updates to AS 4100 and AS/NZS 5131. Summary of changes made and implications. (30 mins) builders, engineers, fabricators, distributors Wed 21 & Thurs 22 Oct

You may book in for all four events or just choose the ones that you are interested in.

Some of the questions answered during the events will include:

  • Do I need to fabricate to the requirements of AS/NZS 5131?
  • A builder has indicated to me that I do not need to work to AS/NZS 5131. Is that correct?
  • What effect does the now normative referencing of AS/NZS ISO 3834 and AS/NZS 5131:2016 Amd 1:2020 have on fabricators?
  • As a Structural Engineer, what are the changes in both AS 4100 and AS/NZS 5131 that affect my design specifications.
  • How is AS/NZS 5131 and ISO 3834 different to what I have been required to do under AS/NZS 1554.1?
  • Do I need a welding supervisor or welding coordinator and if so what qualifications do they require?
  • Can I comply with AS/NZS 5131 if I do not have a quality system  e.g. ISO 9001?
  • The project client requires certification to both AS/NZS 5131 and AS/NZS ISO 3834. Is this really necessary?

This is a must-attend series of events for those who wish to reduce the stress of specifying and complying with the latest versions of AS 4100 and AS/NZS 5131.  If you are an engineer, a builder, a distributor, a fabricator or interested party, we invite you to participate, inform yourself and be part of the journey towards more efficient outcomes!
