For gas work authorisations that have expired, and gas work licences that expired more than 12 months ago, you will need to apply for a new licence or authorisation.

Change details on your licence or authorisation

If you have changed your circumstances or contact details, within 20 business days of the change, email gaslicence@dnrme.qld.gov.au.

Your email must include:

  • your full name
  • your gas work licence or authorisation number
  • your address, phone number and email
  • details of the change in circumstances or contact details.

The Licensing and Authorisation Unit may contact you to verify your request.

Change limits or conditions on your licence or authorisation

If you want to change a limit or condition on your gas work licence or authorisation you'll need to apply for a new licence or authorisation.

You must ensure that you meet the relevant requirements before lodging your application:

  • To change to a different type of licence or authorisation, refer to the current requirements and follow the instructions.
  • To change or remove a condition on a current licence or authorisation (such as a condition restricting you to working only on NG or LPG), email gaslicence@dnrme.qld.gov.au to find out what is required for your particular circumstances.

For example, you may have been given a licence under mutual recognition and have a condition restricting you to working only on gas devices for which the fuel gas is natural gas. In order to remove that restriction, you will need to complete the relevant required units of competency listed in the requirements at a registered training organisation (RTO).

Replace a lost, stolen or damaged licence or authorisation

If your licence or authorisation card or certificate is lost, stolen, destroyed, or badly damaged, you must advise us as soon as possible.

To replace it, you'll need to provide a statutory declaration stating what happened. You can do this by completing a Queensland statutory declaration form (PDF, 235KB) and making your declaration before a Justice of the Peace or Commissioner for Declarations.

Once you have a completed statutory declaration, please contact us.

If you still have the licence or authorisation card or certificate you would like replaced, it must be returned to the Licensing and Authorisation Unit:
