Eligible small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can submit innovative solutions to improve occupational licencing sharing and update of the Automatic mutual recognition of occupational registrations (AMR) scheme.

Grants are available through the BRII to pilot solutions to address four key challenges. These challenges are:

  1. Improving information matching and exchange between jurisdictions to address information sharing challenges for occupational registrations and licences subject to AMR.
  2. Improving information matching and exchange between jurisdictions for the building and construction industries.
  3. Improving information matching and exchange between jurisdictions for security, property, transport and liquor and gaming industries.
  4. Improving uptake of the opportunities available through AMR.

About Automatic Mutual Recognition of Occupational Registrations (AMR)


AMR came into effect on 1 July 2021 in New South Wales, Victoria, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory and will progressively commence in other states.

AMR makes it easier for workers who need to be licenced or registered for their job to work elsewhere in Australia. It removes the need for a worker to pay and apply for a new licence or registration when working in another state or territory, saving them time and money.

AMR also enables state and territory regulators to continue compliance activity in an efficient and effective manner. This results in a greater need for real-time exchange of regulatory information between jurisdictions.
