Surveyors Registration Board of Victoria (SRBV) has initiated a once-in-a-generation review of how licensed surveyors are registered in Victoria. The Board engaged an independent consultant for this review.  .

The consultant has met with SRBV members, the Project Advisory Committee, the Institution of Surveyors Victoria, Consulting Surveyors Victoria, Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute, Spatial Industry Business Association and Geospatial Information & Technology Association ANZ, Surveyor-General Victoria and other jurisdiction surveying boards. This engagement helped inform the development of an issues paper that is open for feedback until 24 September 2021.

Submissions received will start to shape reform options to strengthen the pipeline and diversity of cadastral surveyors in Victoria and will be crucial to informing future targeted consultation.  A final recommendations report with key findings will be provided to the SRBV. The project is expected to be completed by December 2021.

The review will help improve existing processes, without compromising competency, and ensure Victoria has a sustainable surveying workforce to support property and infrastructure development throughout the State.
