Critical Infrastructure Compliance: Is Your Business in Line with Regulations?

Are You a Responsible Entity under Part 7A of the Emergency Management (Vic) Act 2013 for Critical Infrastructure in Victoria? Do you know if your organisation meets its obligations as a Responsible Entity under the Emergency Management (Vic) Act 2013? 

Failure to comply could result in severe penalties and increased vulnerability to risks. At Resilient Services, we understand the complexities involved and are here to help you navigate them with ease.

Under the Victorian Critical Infrastructure Register, all significant critical infrastructure must be listed to ensure they meet security, safety and security standards. Part 7A of the Emergency Management (Vic) Act 2013 mandates specific requirements for the ‘responsible entity’ of these assets. This includes completing a statement of assurance, emergency risk management planning documentation, an exercise, and an audit before the end of each Resilience Improvement Cycle.
