Listed below are the licencing fees for asbestos, demolition, high risk work and high risk work assessors as of March 2022

Why have fees increased under WHS?

With the change to the Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws the WA Government has directed the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety to move to 100% recovery of the costs of administering authorisations (licences/permits/registrations). The cost of administering the authorisations under the WHS (General) Regulations 2022 was calculated and apportioned over the average number of applications received each year to come to an appropriate fee level. The Minister then made a decision with respect to which of those fee increases would be phased in and which would be applied immediately. In circumstance where the fees gathered were more than 100% cost recovery the fees have been reduced.
