This Standard was prepared by the Standards Australia Committee ME/25, Lifting Tackle,
to supersede AS 1353.1—1990. The terms ‘normative’ and ‘informative’ have been used in this Standard to define the application of the appendix to which they apply. A ‘normative’ appendix is an integral part of a Standard, whereas an ‘informative’ appendix is only for information and
guidance. This Standard specifies requirements for flat synthetic-webbing slings that
are intended for lifting purposes. This Standard does not apply to slings that have been repaired.
NOTES: 1 Guidance on information that should be supplied with enquiries and orders is given in
Appendix A. 2 Recommendations for the care and use of flat synthetic-webbing slings are given in
Incorporates Amendment 1/1998.
