In 2019, we sought comment on behalf of the Mining and Petroleum Competence Board (the board) from stakeholders on the discussion paper for a possible new statutory function of geotechnical engineering in underground coal mines. Statutory functions are detailed in Schedule 10 of the Work Health and Safety Mines and Petroleum Sites Regulation 2014.

We received 13 submissions, which have been provided to the board for consideration.
