New Building Work replaces the edition from Ensure your builder is quoting the relevant section of AS There has been a transition period from the previous Standards to the New Standards, which will end on 30 April The Committee will now turn its attention 36601.
AS AEPMA’s interpretation of Concealed and Inaccessible Areas Concealed and inaccessible areas are any section of a structure that are not accessible for visual inspection, or application of a termite management treatment, without the treatment being invasive.
Questions have arisen around Section 7 of AS This is now under Section 7 360.1 AS All members working in termite management at construction should have a copy of this Standard. Depending on the construction methods and site conditions, additional requirements will be necessary for service penetrations through the concrete slab.
In some parts of Australia, it is common practice not to tie the slab to the footings, therefore an entry point exists in the cavity as the slab is not classed as being monolithic.

Assessment criteria for termite management systems AEPMA’s concern is not about broader building practises, and whether a builder will construct the building to the correct Code 36660.1 Specification, or if a certifier will accept something less than the Australian Standard.
Each of these are “components” which, when integrated, will form a “full termite management system”. Both revised documents are part of a series on termite management: Further information and clarification can be obtained from your aa management 33660.1 manufacturers or product resellers. If a concrete slab is used as a component of a system, it in itself will not provide a complete termite management system.
In relation to pavers on sand, these could be lifted and a treatment applied, however if they are on concrete, they would require a different approach.
This means that as of 1 May you will be required to comply with the new version of AS Few members will need a copy of this Standard. The AS suite of Standards were reviewed and 360.1 in In practical terms, if an area cannot be easily re-treated, it is concealed and inaccessible. It provides a clear path for compliance with AS The two documents have been developed for use in the National Construction Code and as a tool to assist builders, designers, regulators, manufacturers, installers, and assessors to provide az with managed termite risk across Australia.
Changes to AS Representatives of government, industry, professional and consumer organisations constituted the Standards Australia technical committee BD Termites. Subfloor voids and undercroft areas that in general terms have a working height of mm or more, would be easy to enter to re-apply a protection system; so only if the working height is less than mm will an additional method of installation be required.

In this instance, further protection would be required. We would like to thank all AEPMA members who participated in the Standards development including making representations.
