Does anyone know which standards/codes are acceptable in Australia for
electrical/instrumentation? For example, is NEC or IEC or ? used there? We
will be building a gas processing facility there next year and need any
info. out there. thanks.
From memory it's something like AS1101.6

That being Graphical symbols for Process measurement and control.

I hope that's what your after..

Australia has its own standards organisation (Standards Australia) which
can be found at

Their standards are named ASxxxx.

SA has an agreement with IEC and re-badges their standards.

For gas installations the Australian Gas Association (AGxxx) also has an
interest (compliance usually mandatory by law), their standards have
recently merged into ASxxxx format.
