The links to the webinar are available on the Automatic Entry Processing (AEP) reform web page along with a copy of the transcript of the webinar. The list of questions asked during the webinar with answers and a frequently asked questions (FAQs) sheet will be made available in the near future.  

The AEP reform webpage is where you will also find the Assessment guide for class 19.2 accredited persons.  This guide has recently been updated to version 3 to rectify a discrepancy with the tariffs that are applicable for exemption for BMSB measures from 1 December 2018. Please ensure that you refer to the updated guide when making your AEPCOMM assessments. 

The department hopes that the webinar was informative and encourages the use of AEPCOMM by BIP’s to assist with the management of BMSB and to avoid processing delays.
