Success: AS2885.3-2022 published

Today, Standards Australia has published the revised AS2885.3-2022, Pipelines – Gas and liquid petroleum, Operations and maintenance.

Congratulations and thanks to the Part 3 committee members, who worked hard for 5 years, through the pandemic and all, to reach this publication stage.

If you have subscription licensed access to Part 3, please make sure your provider has updated your copy on file.

Committee members can download a copy from Standards Australia’s SIM via your username and password. It is licensed only to you for your personal use, and is watermarked as such.

If you have questions about the publication, there are a few options:

  1. ask your question or comment here below, directly on the blog (in a public forum)
  2. you can contact the (now past) committee members if you know them: convenor Geoff Callar (retired from APA), or other key contributors such as Jeff Jones or Gabriel Pizani.
  3. And, as always, you can email the generic email address and we’ll get answers for you.

There’s no imminent plan for a launch via APGA for this, not in 2022 anyway. I’m hoping we can marshal a team to provide a seminar/workshop launch in Q1 2023, probably hosted in person in Sydney. Comment below or contact us directly if you’d attend a launch workshop for Part 3.

AS2885.3 publication

Hello all

For the past 4 months I’ve been “promising” (indirectly and with lots of caveats of course) that AS2885.3 would be published in August. I had high hopes, but of course now it’s September so that promise hasn’t been fulfilled.

I followed up with Standards Australia this week, and they’ve apologised, and have prioritised it for publication ‘next Friday’.

So, look for AS2885.3-2022 to be available on September 9th (… or thereabouts?) (and, there’s another caveat…)
