Under the new DMIRS Work Health and Safety Regulations 2022 (Regulations) that came into effect as of the 31 March 2022. The term “classified Plant” has now been renamed to “Registerable Plant.”
The WHS Regulations replaces the Occupational and Safety Regulations 1996 (OSH Regulations). The implementation of the WHS Regulations will result in several changes to administrative procedures for registration of items of plant and plant design.
Participants need to be a competent person for registration of plant under the WHS Regulations if they have:
- educational or vocational qualifications in an engineering discipline that is relevant to the plant being inspected; or
- knowledge of the technical standards relevant to the plant to be inspected.
