Launching in July 2019
In July 2019, the department is launching a new licensing database to manage licensing and registration functions. Starting with use licence holders, approved testers and approved assessors, the new system will require applicants to register with our new self-service portal.
Existing use licence holders, approved testers and approved assessors will also need to register. We will send these licence holders an email in July with the link to the new licensing portal to register.
Once registered, the system will verify your details and you will then be able to:
- Download a copy of your licence
- Apply for variations to an existing licence or approval
- Make credit card payments
- Update your contact details
- Surrender a licence.
If you currently receive hard copy correspondence from us, then we do not have a verified email address. Please email us, if that is the case, as it will help you make the transition to the new system.
We will no longer accept cheques or cash for payment of licensing fees, but credit cards and B-Pay will remain as options.
What about management licences?
We are still working on this part of the system and we expect to launch it in late 2019. Until then continue to apply for a management licence by following the links to our existing smart forms or word documents on our website.
Once the system is operational, management licence holders and their authorised persons will be able to register and do all the things described as above, as well as being able to:
- Apply for authorisation to dispose of radioactive material
- Make mandatory notifications e.g. acquisition or disposal of a radiation source; research projects; incident reports etc
- Apply to transfer a licence.
Over the past few years we have requested corporate management licence holders to nominate individuals as their authorised person. The authorised person can then act on behalf of the body corporate in their dealings with the department. A feature of the new system will be the ability of that authorised person to add another authorised person. This is important in a corporate context to cater for situations where staff change roles or leave the organisation.
What about facility management licences?
We’re still working on this licence type so until we launch it in the new licensing self-service portal, you will need to apply using the form on our website.
