In 2020, the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments agreed to introduce a uniform scheme for the automatic mutual recognition (AMR) of occupational registrations. The proposed changes are part of red-tape reduction reforms to aid Australia's economic recovery.
Land valuers are one of the occupations that are proposed to be included in the changes.
AMR aims to boost workforce mobility by allowing someone who is licensed or registered in one jurisdiction to be considered registered to perform the same job elsewhere, without the need for detailed application processes or additional registration fees.
National Cabinet has released the exposure draft legislation to amend the Mutual Recognition Act 1992 (Cth), allowing AMR to start from 1 July 2021.
You are invited to make a submission on the AMR scheme and draft legislation by Friday 12 February 2021.
More information on draft changes and how to submit a response is available on the Occupational Mobility website.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss any aspects of the scheme, you can email OccupationalMobility1@pmc.gov.au with your query.
