MUTUAL RECOGNITION ACT 1992 – Section 32

 

Ministerial Declaration

 

 

To give effect to the express wish of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) for full and effective mutual recognition of registered occupations, we the ministers today responsible jointly declare that:

 

The occupation which may be carried on only by a person granted registration (in the form of a licence, certificate, registration, or other instrument) in the first jurisdiction described in Column A in each of the attached Schedules is equivalent to the occupation which may be carried on only by a person granted registration in a second jurisdiction as described in the other columns of the same row in the relevant Schedule, subject to any conditions, limitations or restrictions as indicated.

Notes:

 

The table at each of the attached Schedules depicts the registration outcome for any person already licensed in an occupation in a particular jurisdiction (column A of each row) should they seek to be licensed in an occupation in a second jurisdiction (potentially in any other column in the same row). Registration shall be granted by the second jurisdiction in the terms specified provided the applicant is already registered in the equivalent occupation in the first jurisdiction.

If an applicant for mutual recognition holds a licence shown in Column A of a Schedule, but has additional condition/s applying to that licence not shown in the Schedule, then the relevant registration authority in the second jurisdiction shall recognise the primary licence in Column A and may, in issuing a licence, apply those additional conditions to directly replicate the conditions applying to the first jurisdiction licence.

If a licence is not included in the declaration, or if the licence outcome depicted on a Schedule is the statement ‘No equivalent declared’, the decision on licence recognition will be made by the relevant registration authority in accordance with the other provisions of the Mutual Recognition Act 1992.

Licences covered by this declaration are licences that are issued to natural persons, not licences issued to companies.

This declaration and any subsequent declarations will be reviewed for accuracy each year. Declarations and any revised declarations will be published on the COAG mutual recognition website and the websites of the relevant licensing authorities.
