DoIR centralises north west activities
DEPARTMENT of Industry and Resources Mining Act-related services in WA’s north west will be moved to the Karratha Mining Registrar’s office.
Mineral Titles director Roy Burton said the relocation would transfer services to Karratha that had been carried out on DoIR’s behalf under an agency agreement with the Department of Justice Clerk of Courts offices in Kununurra, Broome and Carnarvon.
"By centralising these services to our regional office in Karratha, the department will achieve a more consistent and improved service for its clients in the north west and Kimberley," he said.
The department undertook a survey to determine the level of services to those regions and to determine the level of impact of the proposed change.
"In Kununurra we found that only 3 per cent of tenement applications lodged last year had local addresses," he said.
"The figure was 6 per cent for Carnarvon and 10 per cent for Broome."
The proposed changes will come into effect on September 8.

The code relates specifically to the manner, effectiveness and efficiency that participants deal with their clients in relation to their business activities.
The code sets out how contract specifications should be set; how performance should be monitored; how businesses should communicate with their clients; complaint handling; dispute resolution and professionalism.
