Compliance in Western Australia
Electronic Lodgment Network Operators must comply with the WA Operating Requirements.
Section 22 of the Electronic Conveyancing Act 2014 (ECA) authorises the Registrar of Titles (the Registrar) to determine, in writing, the Operating Requirements for:
- the operation of an ELNO; and
- the provision and operation, by an ELNO, of an Electronic Lodgment Network (ELN).
In determining the Operating Requirements, ECA s24 requires the Registrar to have regard to the desirability of maintaining consistency with any model provisions.

WA Operating Requirements Version 6.2 (WAORv6) have been prepared having regard to MORv6.2.

Under section 27(1) of the ECA, a waiver from the obligation to comply with a provision of the Operating Requirements may be granted if it is reasonable in all the circumstances.
