Plant registration

For new registration of an item of plant the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2012 (SA) provides for the registration of items of plant that are listed in Part 2 of Schedule 5.

Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 (SA) it is an offence to use plant if the regulations require the plant be authorised (registered) and the plant is not so authorised (registered).

The purpose of registering an item of plant is to ensure that it is inspected by a competent person that it is safe to operate.

Lifts: All lift applications require payment of the application fee to be registered.

Lifts in private residences: Once commissioned, are exempt from payment of renewal fees. All owners are required to provide a declaration that the item of plant (lift) has been maintained, inspected and tested in accordance with the Regulations, section 277 (2) (e).

Owners are required to obtain a written statement from the competent person that the lift is safe to use and operate, and must produce that statement if required to do so by an inspector.

Fees: Refer to Related Information for current Fees.
