Plant registration

Plant items must be registered for use in the ACT under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (the Act) and the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 (the Regulation).

The purpose of registering an item of plant is to ensure that it is inspected by a competent person and is safe to operate. In the ACT, Access Canberra is the regulator and is responsible for plant registration. It is an offence to use plant if the Regulation requires the plant to be registered and it is not so authorised.

Plant designs must be registered for use in the ACT under the Act and the Regulation.

Manufacturers, importers and suppliers must not supply plant unless the design is registered. It is an offence to use plant if the Regulation requires the plant's design to be registered and it is not so authorised.

Access Canberra administers Plant Item and Plant Design Registration. For more information go to the Plant Item and Plant Design Registration page on the Access Canberra Website.
