Members of the Master Builders Association NSW were recently advised that the Fair Work Amendment (Modernising Right of Entry) Regulations 2019, took effect on 1 July 2019.
In order to meet the new requirements, the Fair Work Commission will be issuing permits in a different form. Therefore, permits issued from 1 July 2019 will be the size of a driver’s licence and include a photo of the permit holder. Existing permits will continue to be valid until they expire (unless they are revoked or suspended).
Design of New Permits
All entry permits issued on or after 1 July 2019 must include the following:
The permit holder’s full name
The name of the organisation that applied for the entry permit
An expiry date for the entry permit
A recent photograph of the permit holder that:
o Shows the holder’s full face, and
o Meets requirements that are considered appropriate by the Commission, and
The permit holder’s signature
A permit number
Any conditions imposed on the permit
A QR code leading to a list of current permit holders on the FWC website Following is a sample of the new entry permit.
