This week, we are hosting the annual Conference of Chief Inspectors of Mines (CCIM) and the Australasian Mining Competency Advisory Committee (AMCAC).

The CCIM is an independently constituted body drawing its members from the various mines inspectorates of Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Chief Inspectors of Mines are the most senior technical officers with regulatory responsibility and accountability for mining operations in these jurisdictions. The role of the CCIM is to provide high level technical advice to governments and to take the lead to improve safety and health outcomes for a sustainable Australasian mining industry.

The Australasian Mining Competency Advisory Committee (AMCAC) exists to promote nationally consistent competencies and standards of assessment for mine safety statutory positions, to facilitate the mobility of workers between jurisdictions.
