Information for people intending to move from one Australian state to another

If you are currently registered/licensed elsewhere in Australia, you can apply for an NT licence/registration under Mutual Recognition and you will be issued with the NT equivalent of your licence. For further information, read the attached information sheet. To apply use the Mutual Recognition application form provided below.

If you have a current NT registration/licence card you can apply for the equivalent in other states. However, this will be issued only in the categories of Plumbing and Draining. For further information, read the attached information sheet.

To check the equivalent of your licence visit the COAG web page.

Information for people Intending to travel between Australia and New Zealand

The Mutual Recognition principle applies between Australia and New Zealand in the same way that it applies for people moving from Australian state to another. If you are moving from New Zealand to the NT, complete the Mutual Recognition application form provided below. If you are moving from the NT to New Zealand, visit the NZ Plumbers Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board website for further information.


On renewal you must provide evidence that you have access to the current (2015) version of Australian Standard ASNZS:3500.
