Companies need to use this link https://minerals.org.au/sites/default/files/200409%20Managing%20Supply%20Risks.pdf as a guide for nominating essential suppliers.
This second link https://minerals.org.au/sites/default/files/200409%20Essential%20Supplier%20letter%20template.docx is the template letter for companies to use to self-nominate their essential suppliers and therefore flag to DNRME and QH that they may need to bring to Queensland personnel from these companies from interstate in the future. The supplier should be sent the template letter by the consumer company. The consumer company that nominates the essential supplier should also advise DNRME, on an information basis, that this is their list of essential supplier companies.
Supplier companies, with the support of the customer resource companies, will need to apply in future to obtain permits for personnel to come to Queensland.
