The New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners’ role is to ensure safety for the mining, quarrying and tunnelling industry by advising WorkSafe New Zealand on setting minimum competency and professional development standards, and making sure these are maintained.

The New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners (the Board) has reviewed the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements as part of its responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 to issue, renew, cancel and suspend Certificates of Competence (CoC).

The Board wants your feedback on the proposed changes before making its recommendation to WorkSafe. It is also seeking industry feedback/suggestions on potential transitional arrangements for any changes.
