Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australi an Standards are subject
to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editi ons as necessary. It is
important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest editi on, and any
amendments thereto.
Full detail s of all Australi an Standards and related publications wil l be found in the Standards Australia
Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine ‘The Australian
Standard’, which subscribing members receive, and which gives detail s of new publi cati ons, new edit ions
and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards.
Suggesti ons for improvements to Australi an Standards, addressed to the head off ice of Standards Australia,
are welcomed. Noti fi cati on of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australi an Standard should be made
without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard was prepared by Standards Australia Committee CH/30 on Temperature Measurement to
supersede AS 1006—1971.

This Standard is identical with and has been reproduced from ISO 1770-1981, Solid-stem general purpose
thermometers and ISO 1770-1981 Amendment 1, published 1983-08-01, which were reconfirmed in 1992.
The text affected by the Amendment is marked in the ISO document with double marginal bars.

The objective of this Standard is to provide designers and manufacturers with requirements for liquid-in-
glass solid-stem general purpose thermometers.

For the purpose of this Standard, the text of ISO 1770 should be modified as follows:

(a) Terminology The words ‘this Australian Standard’ should replace the words ‘this International

(b) Decimal marker Substitute a point (.) for a comma (,) wherever it appears as a decimal marker.

Originated as AS 1006—1971.
