Tasmanian Legislation & National Competency Review Online Workshop
Date & Time
Thursday, 3 Mar 2022
- 2:00 pm
SSSI Tasmania is pleased to partner with the Tasmanian Office of the Surveyor-General to present this online workshop on the latest relating to the review of the Strata Titles Act and the CRSBANZ National Standard of Competency for Surveyors project
Review of the Strata Titles Act 1998 – Targeted Consultation
Following the public consultation process in 2020, a Consultation Feedback Report was published on the Department’s website, containing a summary of feedback received, a discussion of issues raised and recommendations of the Recorder of Titles.
The report found that further targeted consultation with key stakeholders and peak bodies in the strata title environment industry is required to assist in determining the amendments to the Strata Titles Act 1998.
It has been determined that the most appropriate approach is to introduce legislative amendments in stages. This will allow meaningful and practical amendments in relation to the day-to-day administration and management of bodies corporate to be introduced as soon as possible, while ensuring that complex issues are thoroughly considered and addressed through further extensive research and analysis.
This current targeted consultation process forms part of the first steps to amend the Strata Titles Act 1998.
The land surveying sector has been identified as a key stakeholder in Tasmania’s strata environment, and feedback is sought in relation to common property and service infrastructure and strata plan requirements. For further background, please click the links to see an Issues Paper for each. It is recommended that the Issues Papers be read in conjunction with the Consultation Feedback Report.
Feedback is required by COB on Monday 21 March 2022, so we invite you to attend this webinar to hear more and share your thoughts. Feedback will be collated following the webinar and forwarded to the Recorder of Titles.
Development of National Standard of Competency for Land Surveying
The Council of Reciprocating Surveyors Boards of Australia and New Zealand (CRSBANZ) is developing a National Standard of Competency for Licenced or Registered Surveyors and is asking members of the sector to participate in the development of the standard by providing feedback on an Issues and Opportunities paper.
Development of the standard provides an opportunity for the issues being experienced across all jurisdictions in land surveyor accreditation resourcing and timeframes to be addressed and it will almost certainly have implications for the Tasmanian Land Surveyor accreditation process.
A national SSSI webinar is being held noon AEDT on Tuesday, 22 February 2022 where project lead Michael Nietschke will go through the issues involved, and we encourage you to attend.
We will however then delve further into the specific impacts for Tasmania in this webinar on Thursday 4 March and collate feedback to contribute.
