REMINDER: AS 3660.1-2014 Termite Management Part 1: New Building Work

From the 1st of May 2017 the above Standard replaces AS 3660.1-2000.

If you are doing Pre-construction work you should get a copy of AS 3660.1-2014 if you don't already have one. Available from Standards Australia marketing organisation SAI Global or from Rapid Solutions (Contact reception 1300 309 169) Hard Copy Cost is$190.00 plus postage for a hard copy. There are pdf versions available only from SAI Global at slightly lower cost.

If you have not already done so you need to download the new AS 3660.1-2014 Certificate of Installation from Rapid Solutions web site (Rapid Solutions clients).

If you are using Report Writer App the Certificate of Installation has been updated.

As there are significant changes to the new Standard regarding chemical treatments to concealed and in accessible areas see clause 7.1.1 you need to read this Standard. The Standard does not mention durable Notices but the NCC Vol 2 does so Durable Notices are still required.

We recommend you also download a copy of the NCC - BCA Vol 2. Free from the ABCB web site www.abcb.gov.au  you will need to register to have access. Refer to 3.1.3 Termite Risk Management.

We also recommend you read the recent article in the AEPMA MAGAZINE Dec/Jan 2017 Pest Manager titled Pest Manager TERMITES.   

We recommend you liaise with your Termite Management System supplier so that you are using products compliant with the testing Standard AS 3660.3-2014 or have been appropriately Code Marked.

We also recommend you liaise with your Builder and the Certifier for the job as to what the Certifier will sign off on.
