Participating Jurisdictions

By 2019 an Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) on governance of the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) has been signed by Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania. Other jurisdictions are currently progressing or considering implementation of the EESS.

Current signatories to the IGA are:

  • Queensland Government
  • Western Australian Government
