Western Australian Land Surveyors Licensing Board

All Land Surveyors (Cadastral Surveyors) are licensed under the Licensed Surveyors Act 1909. In order to complete “authorised surveys” licensed surveyors are required to hold Practicing Certificates that ensure the Surveyor achieves a level of standard in their work and maintains that standard. To maintain the standard, Licensed Surveyors are required to achieve professional development points by attending seminars and workshops. Authorised surveys typically are surveys required under the Transfer of Land Act as subdivisions or surveys to re-establish boundaries of land that have been previously established. To check if your surveyor holds these relevant certificates or to view a copy of the Act please use the link below.
