Compliance plates

All equipment associated with concrete pumping, must have fixed compliance plates, and/or appropriate certification for their use.

For example:

  • Cab and chassis – by the state transport authority in which the unit is registered, with a fixed motor vehicle modification plate showing the appropriate modification codes.
  • Placing boom and outriggers:
  • Concrete pump – by the manufacturer, with a fixed plate showing date of manufacture, serial number
  • Maximum recommended working pressures for hydraulics and concrete, in accordance with AS 1418.15 Cranes (including hoists and winches) concrete placing equipment.
  • Over length and over weight permits – must be obtained, kept current, and in the vehicle.

Any pump, boom, prime mover and/or associated equipment that does not have a compliance plate or permit, should be removed from service immediately, until certification is gained.
