Cathodic protection systems must be registered through the Electrical Safety Office (ESO) Cathodic Protection Registrations Online.
ESO is legally required to keep a register so that owners of cathodic protection systems or structures can identify cathodic protection systems in their vicinity to properly conduct testing, including interference testing. This testing is essential to minimise the damage of structures through corrosion.
The register allows users to manage their registrations and, being integrated with Queensland Globe (QGlobe - a geospatial mapping facility), adds visibility of cathodic protection systems. This enables easier identification of adjacent cathodic protection system and structure owners.
What is Cathodic Protection Registrations Online?
The Cathodic Protection Registrations Online system is an electronic platform for cathodic protection system owners to manage the registration of their cathodic protection systems using MyGovID to authenticate users.
Cathodic protection system owners can:
- register a new cathodic protection system
- re-register an existing system
- notify ESO of a change to a registered system
- update registration contact details
- transfer a registration
- cancel a registration.
Consultants can also perform any of these actions on behalf of cathodic protection system owners with their authorisation.

No, despite having similar names, myGovID and myGov are two separate entities.
myGovID is a federally approved digital identity platform that allows Australian individuals and businesses to access government online services securely. It is an authentication service that verifies the identity of users and allows them to securely access government services using a single credential.
myGov is an online service provided by the Australian Government that allows individuals to access a range of government services using a single login and password. It is a platform where users can link their accounts to different government agencies and services, such as the Australian Taxation Office, Medicare and Centrelink.
While both platforms are designed to help individuals access government services online, myGovID is specifically focused on verifying and managing digital identities and myGov is focused on providing a centralised platform for accessing a variety of government services.
For more information, please visit https://www.mygovid.gov.au/.
Please refer to the definitions for principal authority on the myGovID site.
In terms of Cathodic protection registrations online, we would consider the principal authority to be the organisational Cathodic protection owner, irrespective of the registration containing alternate nominated contact details.
Please refer to the definitions for authorised user(s) on the myGovID site.
In terms of Cathodic protection registration online, we consider an authorised user someone who is approved by the principal authority to administer Cathodic protection registrations on behalf of the principal authority. This could be a nominated user within the nominated principal authority organisation, or a third-party consultant.
Note: Administration of authorised users is the sole responsibility of the Principal authority. Authorised user accesses should be reviewed regularly.
The Queensland Globe (QGlobe) mapping platform provides users with visibility of registered cathodic protection systems and contact information for system owners. This assists owners and consultants to identify other systems and structures in the vicinity of their system for the purposes of interference testing. The QGlobe interactive mapping platform is integrated within Cathodic protection registrations online.
The locations of active Cathodic protection registrations will be publicly available via Queensland Globe.
This information will assist other cathodic protection system owners and consultants when conducting interference testing. Each plotted system will have a unique identification code that will further assist communication between parties.
We recommend you only provide contact information you’re comfortable for the public to see in relation to your registrations.
You don’t need a login to see Cathodic protection registered systems in QGlobe, however some functions do require you to be logged-in e.g. you can save items to ‘places’ in a session, however to retain these for future sessions, you would need to be logged in to permanently save these details.
