What regulations apply to automatic doors in Australia?

Australian Standard AS5007 requires your automatic entrance to be inspected and maintained at least every four months. The building owner or agent is responsible for your automatic entrances’ maintenance and operation. (Applicable to shopfront doors only)

These requirements should be adhered to, or accidents may occur due to electrical or mechanical failure, for which the building owner may be liable.
