Automatic Mutual Recognition
From 1 July 2022, Automatic Mutual Recognition (AMR) applies to a wide range of licensed occupations across participating states and territories. This includes Special Employees and Technician's licences, operating within the gaming industry.
What do I need to do to work under AMR in Tasmania?
To work across the participating states and territories, you must be registered in your home state or territory to undertake the activities you intend to carry out in a second state or territory. You must contact the Tasmanian Liquor and Gaming Commission (firstname.lastname@example.org), to notify them of your intention to work in Tasmania. In this notification, you must include the state or territory you are currently licensed and your licence number. You must comply with the laws of the state or territory where you are working. In the gambling context, this means understanding and meeting the requirements for Responsible Conduct of Gambling and Exclusions.
What are the arrangements for Tasmanians wanting to work under AMR in other states and territories?
Licensed workers from Tasmania can use their Tasmanian licence interstate to work in certain occupations.
To find out if your Tasmanian licence or registration can be used in other states or territories, check that state or territory's website.
What happens if you don't comply with Tasmanian law or licence conditions?
Your entitlement to work interstate under the AMR scheme can be suspended or cancelled. Your home state or territory licence or registration can also be suspended or cancelled.
