This publication documents the history of changes that have taken place in AustralianStandards for structural steel, with specific reference to plate product. All the significantchanges have been listed and, where possible, reasons for such changes are given. As most of these changes are a result of the development of the steel industry in Australia, majordevelopments/plant commissioning in the steel industry are also listed.For the benefit of readers and steel users, the following attachments are included:(a)
