What is Security-by-Design?

In general, the Responsible Person is the legal owner / occupier of the Special Development / Special Infrastructure. Some of the duties of the Responsible Person include:

  • Ensuring specified works commence only with Commissioner (Infrastructure Protection)’s approval of the security plan

Who is the Competent Person? What are the duties of the Competent Person?
