Registration of Tasmanian Surveyors

​​​​​​​​The Surveyors Act 2002 provides for:
    • mandatory registration of surveyors intending to practise as land surveyors in Tasmania; and
    • voluntary registration of surveyors practising other disciplines (such as engineering or hydrographic surveying) who have competency accreditation recognised by a relevant surveying institution as satisfying national competency standards.
The Surveyor General maintains a Register of Tasmanian Surveyors.

All applications for registration must be made to the Office of the Surveyor General, using the forms available below for initial registration or through the LIST interface for renewal of registration. The fee for registration is $306.00 for 2017.  ​The late renewal fee for registration for 2017 is $382.50​​. Failure to renew registration by 31 March 2017 will result in removal from the Register.

A person applying for registration as a land surveyor must have the educational and practical training prescribed by the Surveyors Regulations 2014. The Tasmanian Land Surveyors Accreditation Board administers a process that enables applicants to establish their competency to practise as registered land surveyors in Tasmania.
