Registration of Pressure Equipment

compressorItem registration/design registration — we'll help you with the paperwork!

Item registration is required for boilers and pressure vessels with hazard level of A, B, or C according to the criteria specified in Australian Standard AS4343 (except LP gas fuel vessels for automotive use; serially produced pressure vessels; or pressure vessels that do not require periodic internal inspection).

Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011, Chapter 5, Part 5.3, Division 2. Clause 246:

Items of plant to be registered:

  1. An item of plant specified in Part 2 of Schedule 5 must be registered under this Part. Note — see section 42 of the Act.
  2. The purpose of registering an item of plant is to ensure that it is inspected by a competent person and is safe to operate.

We are happy to assist you with workcover paperwork for item registration, and design registration where required.

Pressure Equipment Inspections

factory1Regular Inspections are required to ensure ongoing safety of plant.

Owners of boilers and pressure vessels (pressure equipment) have an ongoing obligation (duty of care) to ensure that their plant is maintained in a safe operational condition for its service life, and that they have in place a safe system of work associated with that plant.

Regular checks, relevant tests and maintenance inspections are to be conducted at intervals as required by the manufacturer or a code of practice (where one exists).
