Remake of Surveying and Spatial Information Regulation 2024

June 2024 



The Office of the Surveyor-General, NSW is seeking feedback on the Surveying & Spatial Information Regulation 2024 and the Regulatory Impact Statement.  

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.  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 advised.

Consultation Period

From: 14 June 2024   To 15 July 2024.



Submissions will be accepted until Monday, 15 July 2024.

We invite submissions on the draft S&SI Reg 2024, in writing by the due date above.
Please send submissions to:
