AICIP continue to update their resources for our members and industry.
The following Australian and International Standards are applicable to pressure equipment. Elements of these standards are covered in AICIP examinations.
Pressure equipment - In-service inspection
Pressure vessels (primarily typical joint arrangements and general construction).
Boilers (for main types of boilers and typical construction).
Safety valves, other valves, liquid level gauges, and other fittings for boilers and pressure vessels (for terminology and basic requirements only).
Boilers - Safety management, and supervision systems (for safety controls).
Pressure equipment - Operation and maintenance (for owners’ role in inspection).
Pressure equipment - Installation (for inspection at installation).
Pressure equipment - Hazard levels
National Standard for Plant ( for principles and registration of designs of hazard level A, B, C or D pressure equipment, and individual items of hazard level A, B or C equipment). Note: This Standard may be difficult to access, but most States/Territories regulations are similar. It is currently being revised.
