The Office of the Surveyor-General, NSW is seeking input from the surveying sector on the proposed Surveying & Spatial Information Regulation 2024 and the Regulatory Impact Statement. 

The proposed 2024 Regulation has undergone a substantial restructure causing the Section (or Clause) numbers to be significantly different, however, the overall outcome for a survey is similar.

The proposed Regulation will replace the current 2017 Regulation at a date to be determined. It’s objectives are to:

  • Provide for the registration of land and/or mining surveyors.
  • Ensure the accuracy and integrity of the State cadastre and the State control survey.
  • Enable the recording of the size, shape, extent and location of rights, restrictions and responsibilities relating to land and real property.
  • Be technology neutral to enable the surveyor to use the most appropriate equipment/technique to undertake the survey.
  • Ensure a uniform marking standard and appropriate density of survey marks.
  • Enhance reporting of natural feature boundaries and boundary discrepancies.
  • Provide consistent and reliable survey data to support mapping and land management.
  • Provide for the continuation of the Board of Surveying & Spatial Information.

The proposed Regulation should be read in conjunction with the Regulatory Impact Statement and the table that compares Clause/Section numbers from 2017 to 2024:

Written submissions will be accepted until Monday, 15 July 2024, and should be sent to CMU@customerservice.nsw.gov.au.
