Welcome to the online registration service for those entities required to report their interest and control information or operational information under the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018.

The Act establishes a Register of Critical Infrastructure Assets, which contains information on who owns, controls and has access to a particular asset.

The Act sets out two types of reporting entities who are required to provide information:

  • a Direct Interest Holder, reporting ownership and control information
  • a Responsible Entity, reporting on operational information.

There are two forms available on the next page. If you are registering your asset for the first time, complete the new registration form. If a notifiable event has occurred and you are advising of changes to an existing registration, complete the change an existing registration form.

If you are both a Direct Interest Holder and Responsible Entity of a critical infrastructure asset you will need to complete both forms. Upon successful submission of either form you will be provided with the option to complete the second form, which will pre-fill some sections for you.
