Step 2 > Complete your business profile

Using your new details, login to the GWMWater Contractor Management System.

Follow the process to register your business, which includes answering pre-qualification questions about the work you do to categorise your business. As part of this step, you’ll indicate which licences and insurances you can supply to support your registration.

Step 3 > Pay for registration based on category

You will now be categorised and pay using the information you have provided.

The costs outlined below are determined by the complexity and verification needed for your registration. For more information about these categories, please visit the FAQ’s and Documents page.

Step 5 > Complete a Safety Management System (SMS) review and finalise registration

The final step for business registration is to successfully complete a SMS review, an independent desktop audit of your Work Health and Safety documents by a qualified WHS professional. More information about SMS reviews can be found on the FAQ’s and Documents page. The documents you’ll be asked to upload in the system for your SMS review depend on your category and may include, but are not limited to:

On successful review, you will be emailed that your business registration is complete.

To complete your registration, you will next register your workers, purchase their site access cards, and book their inductions.
