Surveyor-General of Victoria Practice Directives
The Surveyor-General issues Practice Directives to provide advice to licensed surveyors in the interpretation of relevant aspects of surveying Acts and Regulations.
All surveys undertaken from 1 February 2011 must comply with the January 2011 Practice Directives. These Practice Directives replace the January 2007 directives and supersede all previous directions, notes and circulars issued by the Surveyor-General.
