Description

This Standard sets out requirements for the preservative treatment and identification of timber to provide protection from decay and insect attack including marine borers in all likely exposure conditions throughout New Zealand, based on six hazard classes that are described in this Standard.

Scope

The requirements are based on hazard classes that are described in this Standard.

The assessment of treatments in this Standard is on an evidential basis for resisting fungal, insect or marine wood borer attack within the prescribed hazard class.

In addition, in this Amendment No. 5 some consideration has also been given to the intended end-use of the treated timber.

The requirements for hazard class H1.1 and H1.2 apply to all species for which hazard class H1.1 and H1.2 is specified in NZS 3602. Hazard classes H2, H3.1, H3.2, H4, H5 and H6 apply only to Pinus species.

Some special requirements are also included for softwood Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). Refer to AS/NZS 1604 Parts 2 to 5 with the exception of H1.2 treatment for LVL for which this Standard will apply. This Standard is intended for use by treatment plants. Assessment of compliance is to apply at the plant gate.
