The Federal Government’s Mutual Recognition Amendment Bill 2021 has been passed by the Senate. The reform enables registered workers to operate across jurisdictions, without having to apply,
pay for and wait for a further registration to perform the same type of work in another State. Automatic mutual recognition (AMR) of occupational registrations will make it easier and faster for
skilled workers to work across borders, assist with natural disasters, and enable businesses to provide services more seamlessly across borders.

The Federal Government considers that AMR could benefit over 120, 000 people who work across borders and may encourage more people to do so. It is expected that the AMR could also add approximately $2.4 billion to the economy over the next ten years.
