RECONFIRMATION NOTICE
Major stakeholders of this publication have reviewed the content of this publication and in accordance with Standards Australia procedures for reconfirmation, it has been determined that the publication is still valid and does not require change.
Certain documents referenced in the publication may have been amended since the original date of publication. Users are advised to ensure that they are using the latest versions of such documents as appropriate, unless advised otherwise in this Reconfirmation Notice.
Approved for reconfirmation in accordance with Standards Australia procedures for reconfirmation on 29 August 2018.
Approved for reconfirmation in New Zealand on behalf of the New Zealand Standards Approval Board on 18 June 2020.

This Standard specifies requirements for the design of aluminium alloy load carrying members and elements. The allowable stress design (ASD) criteria are intended as an alternative to the limit state design (LSD) criteria (see AS 1664.1). One design specification (ASD or LSD) applies throughout the design of a single structure.
