In accordance with Australian statutory requirements, all pressure vessels with Hazards Level A, B, C, or D are required to be design registered with WorkSafe. As part of this process, the design must also be verified by an accredited tester, ensuring the product is designed correctly to avoid the potential to cause harm or injury.
In Australia, HRL provides National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited design verification of pressure equipment to many industries.
In New Zealand, HRL is a Recognised Inspection Body for design verification of pressure equipment (NZ Worksafe RIB004).
One particular client was looking to import and sell pressure vessels into the Australian market, but was unsure of the Australian statutory requirements surrounding this. The client approached HRL looking for advice throughout the process, and assistance to enable the sale of the equipment in accordance with the statutory requirements.
