Submissions open - proposed removal of a plant registration condition (News)

13 May 2021

Comcare proposes removing its imposed condition on duty holders to submit annual notifications of any maintenance, repair, inspection or testing of an item of plant, which includes high-risk machinery such as cranes, vehicles, forklifts, lifts, boilers, gas cylinders and amusement rides and devices.

Comcare is inviting relevant stakeholders to make a submission on the proposed removal of the condition between 13 May – 24 June 2021 via email at:

The feedback you provide will be carefully considered and used to inform our decisions. Subject to the outcome of the consultation process, the condition to submit annual plant registrations will cease from August 2021.

For more information, Comcare has developed a factsheet  (PDF, 659.3 KB) about the proposed removal with further details around plant risk factors, legal requirements, reasons for the proposed change and next steps.
