Plant design registration
Design registration ensures that plant listed in Schedule 5 of the Regulation is designed and verified to appropriate technical standards prior to being supplied.
The designer or the person with management or control of the item of plant can apply to to have a design registered.
Once the design is registered, any number of items can be supplied as long as it complies with the design that was registered. The registration holder must provide the design registration number with each item that is supplied.
Plant design registration and plant registration are authorisations under Part 4 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.
Owners, designers, manufacturers, suppliers and others must register a plant design in certain circumstances.
