  • Infrastructure Australia Audit

  • FIG Working Week 2020

Infrastructure australia audit

As part of its 2019 Audit, Infrastructure Australia identified a number of issues, gaps and problems to develop a clear understanding of the challenges and opportunities listed in its Audit.

Infrastructure Australia subsequently requested feedback and the National Land Surveying Commission responded with a submission based on the role of surveyors, the importance to address our inherent skill shortages and the impact it could have on the delivery of infrastructure projects.

FIG Working Week

Examples are to be prepared for industry, but on hold until early 2020 due to resources being directed to meeting Subdivision and Application processing turnaround times. Refer to Customer Information Bulletin 187 for more information.


The three conference days 11-13 May 2020 will be packed with a selection of technical sessions designed by the ten FIG Commissions and will cover all the broad areas of surveying. The main theme of the Working Week 2020: Smart Surveyors in Land and Water Management will be a substantial part of the technical programme. Each day will begin with a plenary session with special invited speakers under the themes:

  1. Smart Surveyors
  2. Land and Water Management
  3. Ten Years to Go to the Sustainable Development Goals

The technical programme and sessions will also cover these overall themes in special sessions and sessions with papers from the open call.

FIG General Assembly will take place on 10 and 14 May 2020.
