AIRAH and Standards Australia are pleased to present a seminar series on the recently adopted and published refrigeration safety and environmental standards; AS/NZS/ISO 817:2016 Refrigerants – Designation and safety classification which replaces AS/NZS 1677.1:1998 and AS/NZS 5149 Refrigerating systems and heat pumps – Safety and environmental requirements: Parts 1 to 4, which replaces AS/NZS 1677.2:1998. 

Each of these new adoptions have had major modifications and revisions over the previous AS/NZS1677 series and are critical as we move to low global warming potential refrigerants.  AIRAH will be holding the update seminars throughout Australia in February and March 2017 to provide an introduction and overview to the main changes that will affect the HVAC&R industry.


Highlights of the seminar:

  • Changes to refrigerant safety classifications
  • Changes to safety and environmental standards

The AS/NZS 5149 standard is published in four parts comprising over 160 pages of technical safety and environmental requirements under the general title, Refrigerating systems and heat pumps – Safety and environmental requirements:
  • AS/NZS 5149.1:2016 Part 1 Definitions, classification and selection criteria
  • AS/NZS 5149.2:2016 Part 2: Design, construction, testing, marking and documentation
  •  AS/NZS 5149.3:2016 Part 3 Installation site
  • AS/NZS 5149.4:2016 Part 4 Operation, maintenance, repair and recovery. 

Standards Australia will also provide an outline on the following topics:
  • Standards Australia overview and how Standards are developed
  • Background to AS/NZS ISO 817 and AS/NZS 5149 projects
  • Engagement and participation with standards development.


Who should attend?

All stakeholders who have an interest in refrigeration and air conditioning should have an interest in the new refrigeration safety and environmental standards. Compliance with these standards can help all participants in the refrigeration and air conditioning supply chain demonstrate duty of care. All stakeholders in refrigeration and air conditioning design, installation, operation and maintenance and ownership are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these important new international minimum safety and environmental benchmarks.
