It is recognized that the content of this part Standard would usually be the responsibility of a regulatory body. Nevertheless, owing to the reforms taking place in the industry at present, no national body has yet been identified to take up such responsibilities. Therefore, for the purpose of this edition the document is published as part of the AS 3500 series. If in the future a national regulatory administration is identified, the Standard will be modified accordingly. The performance requirements of this Standard have been published excluding a durability clause. This course of action was found necessary owing to a division existing within the committee members responsible for the document. It is possible that in the future durability requirements could become part of this document by means of an amendment or a full revision of the Standard.
