Changes to Australian Standards affecting Forklift Manufacturing (AS 2359.6)
30 July, 2014
This year, a few major changes were made to the Australian Standards of the manufacturing of forklifts. The blog today not only discusses these changes but also when they must be complied with by the forklift manufacturing industry and how you can overcome these changes if you have a forklift which doesn’t comply to the new safety standards.
Standards Australia is Australia’s peak non-government Standards organisation assigned by the Commonwealth Government. The main function of the organisation is to ensure Australian standards are not only contemporary but also internationally aligned. The organisation leads and promotes a respected and unbiased Standards development process ensuring all competing interests are heard, their points of view considered and consensus reached.
Standards Australia produce living documents that reflect progress in science, technology and systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued. Standards may also be withdrawn.
