Work health and safety licensing and plant registration forum

The NSW Resources Regulator is conducting an industry forum on improving our approach to processing authorisations under the work health and safety legislation.

We are making a firm commitment to improving our approach to processing authorisations, and in 2018 we will be implementing a range of changes to our internal processes for registrations and licensing. The changes we are making will: 
  • enable us to process applications for registrations or licences in a more timely manner
  • streamline the application process through a new online application system
  • create a more efficient and cost-effective model for reviewing applications.
The registration and licensing scheme under the work health and safety legislative regime in NSW operates across a wide range of industries. The regime requires applicants to pay fees for the registration or licensing service. 
A transition period will precede the introduction of the fees for registrations and licences processed by the NSW Resources Regulator. Fees will be applied to all new registration and licence applications received from 1 July 2018.
An industry information session on the changes will be held in Sydney on 30 May 2018. Download a copy of the event program [PDF, 54.18 KB].
Venue: Penrith Panthers, 123 Mulgoa Road, Penrith
Date: 30 May 2018
Time: 9am - 12pm
