Ok – so it’s only some 5 months latter than expectations. It’s still great to see this standard finally appear.
AS1851 provides a task schedule and scope to those who service and repair essential services measures in buildings (except those which for some idiotic reason weren’t included).
It clearly defines the requirements and expectations required of the building owner (base building data, alternate solution documentation, tactical plans and procedures) as well as the how and when to service.
The essential services measures which were inappropriately excluded were: Emergency Lifts, Emergency Lighting & Exit Signs, and Standby Power Systems. Hopefully the next review can see these included.
