A Regulation 13 (Reg 13) Certificate is issued for each CORSnet-NSW installation by Geoscience Australia (GA), a facility accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA).
The certificates are usually available three to four months after installation, valid for five years and include verified and accurate GDA2020 coordinates. More information is available on Geoscience Australia’s Regulation 13 Certificates page.
This verification is important as it provides a reference to a standard of measurement in accordance with the National Measurement Regulation 1999 and the National Measurement Act 1960.
Consequently, they assist users in establishing legal traceability of GNSS positions when CORSnet-NSW data is used.
