You will need to lodge a separate form for each item of plant to be registered.

What happens after I submit a new application?

  5. Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) will send an application form for renewal before expiry of the registration.

Once your renewal has been successfully submitted, you will be sent an invoice for any remaining outstanding amount. You may choose to pay any of the two options available.
