In May 2015, Standards Australia senior management was alerted to the fact that the 2014 editions within the AS/NZS 1554 suite contained material that was included without adherence to Standards Australia’s standards development processes.

The relevant material relates to specifications contained in the following standards:

  • AS/NZS 1554.1:2014 Structural Steel Welding, Part 1: Welding of steel structures
  • AS/NZS 1554.5:2014 Structural Steel Welding, Part 5: Welding of steel structures subject to high levels of fatigue loading
  • AS/NZS 1554.7:2014 Structural Steel Welding, Part 7: Welding of sheet steel structures

To ensure that the AS/NZS 1554 suite of standards remain trusted documents, Standards Australia will issue correction amendments to remedy the breach of process.
