I am registering on the Register of Critical Infrastructure Assets as a:

Direct Interest Holder

A Direct Interest Holder is required to report ownership and control information.

An entity is a Direct Interest Holder in relation to an asset if the entity:

  • together with any associates of the entity, holds an interest of at least 10% in the asset (including if any of the interests are held jointly with one or more other entities); or
  • holds an interest in the asset that puts the entity in a position to directly or indirectly influence or control the asset.

An entity can be an individual, a body corporate, a body politic, a partnership, a trust, a superannuation fund, or an unincorporated foreign company


The Notification of Change form is not yet available.

Should you need to notify a change to the ownership and control information of an asset, please submit a PDF document securely by attaching it to our General enquiry submission form.

Please ensure you keep a copy of any submitted documents for your own records, as we will not be able to forward these to you in the future.

Responsible Entity

Responsible Entity reports operational information. A Responsible Entity for an asset means:

  • for a critical electricity asset or a critical gas asset—the entity that holds the licence, approval or authorisation (however described) to operate the asset to provide the service to be delivered by the asset; or
  • for a critical water asset—the water utility that holds the licence, approval or authorisation (however described), under a law of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory, to provide the service to be delivered by the asset; or
  • for a critical port—the port operator (within the meaning of the Maritime Transport and Offshore Facilities Security Act 2003) of the port; or
  • for an asset declared under section 51 to be a critical infrastructure asset—the entity specified in the declaration as the Responsible Entity for the asset (see subsection 51(2)); or
  • for an asset prescribed by the rules for the purposes of paragraph 9(1)(f)—the entity specified by the rules for the asset.

An entity can be an individual, a body corporate, a body politic, a partnership, a trust, a superannuation fund, or an unincorporated foreign company.
