The first code of practice for model rocketry in Australia.

Some time ago the Australian Rocketry Association INC joined the Safeworks Australia Forum. The goal for this was to get national standards across the country for rocketry within the individual states dangerous goods branches.

Whilst this goal is 5 years or more from completion as changing regulations takes alot of time, the Australian Rocketry Association INC has managed to have the Blue Book accepted as a code of practice for rocketry across the country.

While it is not law to follow the code of practice or for that state to adopt it at this stage it is however a reference point for Commonwealth and State governments to use. This is in line with the CASA reference to the blue book in its guidelines and regulations.

The Australian Rocketry Association INC members should be proud of the hard work that is put into the Blue Book each year and that hard work is now finally paying off. The Blue Book helped shape the air rules we fly under and we hope to shape the dangerous goods rules in the near future to help bring rocketry to all rocketeers across Australia with less restrictions.

Special thanks to Maurice Laffin and Phillip Moore for your extra work with Safeworks Australia and to the Blue Book Sub-Committee and to the members who take time to make submissions to help shape your rocketry future for all Australians and not a select few. JOB WELL DONE!!!

As many of you know I have been studying this year and will be studying for quite some time in the near future.

Well one of my subjects and projects which is very close to completion was to write an occupational safety and health policy that met the legistation and regulation requirements and also code of practice inclusions.

SO from this project a wealth of knowledge has been learnt that will in fact be able to help the ARA with some finer points to writing and producing such complex documents especially for government departments.

As the blue book is seen as a code of practice it would be beneficial if we produce it to a standard that will reflect govt requirements and also set an Australian standard for rocketry in this country.

I have put this on my to do list for the near future along with lots of other documents that are in some need of some tlc.
