Quarry manager tier 2 practising certification changes on horizon

Quarry manager tier 2

The changes for quarry manager tier 2 practising certificates will take place on 1 October 2022, as advised by the NSW Resources Regulator.

A final reminder has been issued by the Regulator, regarding the assessment process for tier 2 specific location quarries with an inspector on site.

From Friday 30 September 2022, the regulator will stop accepting applications for the exisiting requirements, detailed in the gazette. From 1 October 2022 the only process for new applicants will be to apply for an all tier 2 quarries certificate by satisfying the qualification and experience gazetted requirements.

The changes centre around length of experience and exposure to mining operations, by the potential applicant.

The certificate issued by the regulator enables a person to exercise the statutory function of a quarry manager as specified in clause 31 schedule 10 of the Regulation.

Additionally, the Tier-2 practising certificate may be granted subject to the condition it is applicable only to a specified mine, or mines, that is a Tier-2 quarry or to all Tier-2 quarries. An individual who is granted a quarry manager practising certificate in accordance with the regulator is not eligible to perform the role of quarry manager at a mine determined by the regulator to be a Tier-1 quarry.

Further information can be obtained from the Regulator site, Applying for a practising certificate webpage.
