In Australia, AS2030, AS2337, and the relevant Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) authorities in each state require that each cylinder has its unique design verified, registered, and permanently marked on each cylinder.

Purchasing cylinders from an overseas manufacturer and importing them to Australia is a small part of the process. Several steps need to be completed before a gas cylinder can be filled;

Mechanical Design Verification

Mechanical Design Verification confirms the suitability of any gas cylinder for its intended service by looking at the manufacturer’s drawings, design calculations, raw product test records, cylinder test records, and type-testing certification. This information forms a technical data package to verify compliance with the cylinder design against the cylinder manufacturing standard used to design and produce the cylinder. This work is undertaken by a certified Mechanical Engineer.

Design Registration

Once verified, the cylinder design must be registered with the WHS authority in your state. The registration process varies based on the requirements set out by each WHS authority. Assuming it meets all the technical specifications, the cylinder design is approved for testing and filling in Australia. A unique Design Approval number remains relevant to all gas cylinders produced under the registered design.

First Test Stamp and First Fill

Prior to any gas cylinder’s first hydrostatic test or first fill, the Design Approval number must be permanently marked on each cylinder. These markings are accompanied by the registered Gas Cylinder Test Station stamp that is applied to ensure traceability throughout the cylinder’s life.
