Seeking Registration in Another State
Licensed Surveyors from Victoria may apply for registration in another
State or Territory of Australia or New Zealand under the provisions
of the Mutual Recognition Act 1992. The Council of Reciprocating Surveyors Boards of Australia and New Zealand (CRSBANZ)
has a commitment to the principle of mutual recognition of professional
registration between all Australian States and Territories and
New Zealand, which dates back to its inaugural conference in 1892. Under the Mutual Recognition Act 1992, licensed surveyors are required
to obtain a Letter of Accreditation from the Surveyors Registration
Board of Victoria and attach it to their application for registration
in another jurisdiction.
A Letter of Accreditation can be obtained by completing the appropriate Statutory Declaration and returning it along with the prescribed fee ($61.90)
to the Board.
The Letter of Accreditation will be forwarded to the reciprocating Board and a copy sent to the
Letters of Accreditation are issued by the Board on the clear understanding
that licensed surveyors acquaint themselves with the appropriate
legislation and practices of the other jurisdiction, and comply with
all the requirements of the reciprocating Board.
