Each year, about 350 of Victoria's licensed surveyors prepare and lodge up to 10,000 plans with Land Use Victoria.

The Surveyor-General Victoria (SGV) is responsible for monitoring and regulating cadastral surveying in Victoria.

SGV's Survey Audit Program monitors the standard of cadastral surveys lodged with Land Use Victoria. Approximately two per cent of the total number of surveys lodged with Land Use Victoria annually are audited; these audits cover one third of the practising licenced surveyors in Victoria.

The Surveyors Registration Board of Victoria (SRBV) is a statutory body responsible for establishing and maintaining educational requirements for licensing land surveyors, maintaining a register of licensed surveyors, and managing disciplinary procedures. To perform cadastral surveys in Victoria, a surveyor must be licensed by the SRBV.

From time to time the Surveyor-General of Victoria introduces practice directives to help licensed surveyors interpret regulations and inform them of changes to requirements issued by the Surveyors Registration Board of Victoria.

To improve the knowledge of land surveyors in key areas of cadastral surveying and re-establishment, a number of guidance notes have been created by SGV on relevant topics and the practical application of re-establishment principles through worked case studies.
