Compliance to the manufacturing standard AS/NZS 2712

Testing of compliance is available from:

  • University of Stuttgard, Germany
  • There are several testing laboratories in Australia.

The 2002 version of the standard is operative until July 2009 for applications for building consents using Acceptable Solution G12/AS2. From that date applicants for a building consent will not be able to utilise G12/AS2 unless their system has been demonstrated to comply with the 2007 version of the standard.

Application for listing as a complying Solar Water Heating System

A custom built application complies with AS/NZS 2712:2007 if it uses components that themselves individually comply with the standard. However a custom built application also has to comply with a requirement that the tank volume to collector aperture area ratio is no greater than 50L/m2.

A Complying SWH System must also not discharge on a daily basis more than three times the sum of the volume of water in the collector array plus the thermal expansion volume of the water contents of the tank.
