You will need to lodge a separate form for each item of plant to be registered.
If you are registering an amusement device or a concrete placing unit with a boom, you will need to complete an Application for registration of registrable plant (PDF, 0.19 MB) as online submissions are not accepted for these plant items.

- If you submitted your application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, your application will be processed and an email will be sent with details for payment.
- If no immediate payment is made an invoice will be sent to the person with management or control of the plant.
- A certificate of registration will be sent to the person with management or control of the plant once payment is received and your application has been processed.
- Registration is valid up to 31 January from the day it is granted, subject to payment of an annual fee and the lodgement of the renewal application.
- Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) will send an application form for renewal before expiry of the registration.

Please note that further steps will be taken to validate the data collected as part of the renewal process including design registration details of the registered item, annual and major inspection reports and competent persons.
