What if my plant design comes from overseas?

Plant listed in part 1 of schedule 5 of the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 must be verified to the appropriate technical standards or engineering principles. This still must be done even if the plant is already able to be used in other countries.

Technical standards includes standards published by recognised national or international standards development organisations, for example:

  • The International Standardisation Organization - ISO
  • The American Society of Mechanical Engineers - ASME
  • Europaische Norm (European standard) - EN
  • German Institute for Standardisation - DIN
  • Australian Standards - AS

If your plant design has come from overseas and you are based in Queensland, you will need to have a competent person verify it for you.

Use Form 14 - Application for registration of plant design (PDF, 0.2 MB) and have the competent person complete the design verification statement in section 7 on page five. Make sure they complete this section and sign the declaration in section 8. You then complete the rest of the form and submit it.

Certificates of examination or verification statements will only be accepted as supporting documentation for the information provided on the application form.

You will still require a competent person to complete sections 7 and 8 of Form 14 as the design verifier.
