11 September 2012

Plumbers, gas fitters, electricians and real estate agents across South Australia are invited to attend information sessions being held by Consumer and Business Services to share information on current proposals for national regulation of occupations.

The proposals for a National Occupational Licensing System (NOLS) are currently available for public comment, and the information sessions will cover the national proposals, and provide an opportunity for discussion and questions.

A streamlined, nationally consistent licensing scheme would aim to increase workers’ mobility, and remove overlapping and inconsistent regulation between jurisdictions for the licensing of occupational areas.

The national system would replace the various current state and territory-based licensing regimes, and employers and consumers would be able to check a national register of licence holders.

The NOLS proposals for each occupation are outlined in the Consultation Regulation Impact Statements, which aim to seek views from licence holders, business and other interested parties.

To assist with planning the sessions, please register your interest by emailing NOLS [at] agd.sa.gov.au with your name, location and the session(s) you wish to attend. Please note that registration is not mandatory and interested parties unable to register are still welcome to attend.
