Section 244 of the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 refers to 'Altered plant designs to be registered'. If the design of an item of design-registrable plant is altered to the extent that health and safety has been affected, the altered design must be re-registered.
The person who altered the plant design should engage a suitably experienced professional engineer to verify the design of the altered plant to determine if the alteration has affected health and safety and whether the altered design must be re-registered.
Contact the Engineering Unit if you are unsure if your modification requires a new design registration.
