Eligible persons include:
- person to whom the notice or licence was issued
- person with management or control of the workplace
- whose interests are affected by the decision: for example, a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), or a worker or a health and safety representative, or a person affected by a decision involving registrations, assessors or training.
