New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners

In October 2014 a highly experienced group of extractives industry practitioners has been appointed to the New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners.

The New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners will also examine applicants for certificates of competency and issue, renew, and suspend certificates of competency. The Board also has additional responsibilities to ensure training and continuing professional development programmes are fit-for-purpose.

The new mining health and safety regulations and amendments to the Health and Safety in Employment Act came into force in December 2013 including a requirement for WorkSafe to establish the New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners.

The New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners will advise the Board of WorkSafe on the health and safety competency requirements for workers in the extractives industry – a key recommendation of the Royal Commission on the Pike River Tragedy.

The New Zealand Mining Board of Examiners closely works with its Australian counterparts to ensure equivalent standards in both countries.
