Online lodgement of survey documents & survey data

DMIRS introducing new lodgement strategy for surveyors
Date: Monday, 21 September 2020

As part of its move towards a digital delivery and online lodgement strategy, the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) has introduced the Online Lodgement of Survey Documents and Survey Data.

Online Lodgement will create greater efficiencies in the way the department integrates the survey of new leases into Landgate’s Spatial Cadastral Database, DMIRS’ Tengraph Web and the way it receives and stores documents relating to the Survey of Leases.

Mineral Titles Online with enable the lodgement of:

  • Surveyors field book in PDF;
  • FORM 44 Surveyors Report in PDF; and
  • CSD data file containing surveys within a survey project.

All Approved Surveyors are encouraged to adopt these changes to serve Western Australia’s mining industry more effectively by expediting the display of tenement holders’ surveyed leases within DMIRS’ spatial mapping systems and the production of certified legal survey documents.

All surveyors on the DMIRS ‘List of Approved Surveyors’ are expected to put in place work practices that will enable online lodgement by 1 July 2021.

No manual lodgement of survey documents will be accepted after this date.
