The Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022 (WHS Mines Regulations) set out the statutory certificates that may be granted to a person, and the eligibility requirements for those certificates. Schedule 27 should be consulted for full details of requirements and functions.

Following an assessment by the relevant competence committee that an applicant is suitable to hold a certificate, a statutory certificate may be granted by the WorkSafe Commissioner as the regulator.

The Surveyors Competence Advisory Committee (SCAC) assesses applications for authorised mines surveyor’s certificates, grades 1 and 2.

The Mining Competence Advisory Committee (MCAC) assesses applications for all other statutory certificates. 

Applications for statutory certificates will be managed using the WHS Mines Statutory Positions Portal.
