Industry Portal may be used as an alternative form of lodgment. Generally, applications submitted electronically through the NEATS Industry Portal do not require a hard copy to also be submitted.
The revised NOPTA application forms have come into effect on 1 December 2018, the revised forms contain new signature blocks (see also Fact Sheet—Execution of forms by companies). To avoid any confusion, the online application forms in NEATS will be withdrawn until further notice, with the expection for change of company name.
Please note: Acreage release (work-bid exploration permits and cash-bid exploration permits) are to be submitted in the approved form as outlined in the relevant Gazette Notice.
At this stage the Industry Portal only permits the lodgement of the application for approval and registration of change in name of company.
