Individual Registration Renewal

All registrants are required to renew their registration on a yearly basis. Renewal applications are forwarded by email to the last known email address of a registrant in late September or early October of each year.  Renewal applications are required to be completed and lodged with the Board by 30 November of each year.  Registration expires on 31 December each year.  It is the responsibility of the registrant to lodge their renewal. Registrants are also responsible for advising the Board of any change of address or other details relating to their registration.

The Surveyors Act 2003 requires the Board to assess competence for the renewal of registration each year. All registrants are required to self-certify that they have maintained their competency and a random selection of 10% of registrants is required to provide documentary evidence of their competency to the Board via a Career Episode Report (CER). If a registrant is selected to complete a CER their renewal application will not be processed by the Board until the CER is lodged and successfully assessed.

The renewal application form contains a declaration about maintaining competence and requires each applicant to insert the document identifier number relevant to their level of registration within the declaration (see below).

I solemnly and sincerely declare that I have maintained my qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience as described in the Competency Framework Documents (Insert Document Identifier)…  …and I hereby apply for renewal of my registration. I make this declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true.

The document identifier number is located at page bottom of the respective Competency Frameworks. For surveyors with multiple endorsements a number of documents identifier numbers are required to be inserted in the declaration. As a guide the document identifier for the surveyor framework is SBQ-CF-0103.

The renewal application requires each applicant to:

  • Complete the online application form via the link sent to you via email, and ensure all necessary details are updated; and
  • Pay the renewal fee listed on the invoice.

Applications received after 30 November of each year incur a late fee. The registration of registrants who have not applied for renewal of registration by 31 December of each year will lapse.

For further information about renewals please refer to the Board Renewal of Registration Policy.

Restoration to the Register

If a renewal application is not submitted and successfully processed by the Board then registration lapses at 31 December.  A registrant has a further 3 months (to 31 March) to lodge a 10A – Restoration to the Register form.  The applicant is also required to pay a late fee and a restoration fee.

If registration has lapsed for greater than 3 months please refer to the Board Restoration Policy for further information about re-registration with the Board.
