Regulated Plant

Pressure Vessels

  • Guidance documents
  • University scheduled inspections

    We ask that Schools and Departments ensure that up to date information about each pressure vessel they own or control has been passed onto the preferred external consultant, Frank Busch Inspection Pty Ltd. The consultant runs scheduled inspections for all registered pressure vessels across Schools, Faculties and Departments within the University. These inspections are in line with AS/NZS 3788.

  • Local area scheduled maintenance and servicing

    At certain times there may be an opportunity for departments to access a group servicing contract for autoclaves. Please direct queries to your local health and safety Business Partner.
