New design registration orders
Following a recent review, all design orders for mining-specific plant, requiring design registration under clause 177 of the Work Health and Safety (Mines and Petroleum Sites) Regulations 2014, have been updated.
Last Friday, the Registration of Design of Plant Used to Determine or Monitor the Presence of Gas Order 2019 was gazetted. It includes updated design, testing and performance requirements, bringing it into line with the latest Australian/New Zealand standards. It takes effect on 1 July 2019. All applications submitted prior to that date will continue to be assessed against the Registration of Design of Plant Used to Determine or Monitor the Presence of Gas Order 2015.
All existing design registrations remain unchanged.
Three fact sheets focused on the registration process, what plant requires registration and the role of designers and design verifiers have been developed to inform applicants, designers and design verifiers.
