Issue 36 – March 2012
Regulation 53 of the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010 for safety management systems requires that operators of safety management systems (SMSs) must make, and send to the Secretary, a statutory declaration that confirms that the operator's SMS has a current audit certificate. The first such statutory declaration must be submitted within 6 months of the first audit of the SMS.
Energy Safety advises that statutory declarations should be completed in the form set out in Schedule 1 of the Oaths and Declarations Act 1957, and should contain information relevant to the audit certificate.
Summarised from the Ministry of Economic Development's Energy Safety Business Update March 2012.
