Modifications to an existing design registration

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.
