The Competent Authorities Panel—National Exemptions, Approvals and Determinations

The Competent Authorities Panel (CAP) considers submissions from industry requesting nation-wide approvals, exemptions, determinations and classifications that may operate at variance to the Australian Dangerous Goods Code.


Submissions to CAP must first be considered by the Competent Authority in the relevant jurisdiction (Contact details of these organisations).

When submitting an application to CAP through your Competent Authority it is essential that you use the pro-forma and provide adequate supporting information for CAP members to consider. This may include diagrams, photographic material and other technical information; and in the case of an application for exemption, demonstrate ‘equivalent safety’.

If you are uncertain of what to provide to support your submission contact your Competent Authority.
