Processing Timeframes

Submitting compliant applications with an appropriate lead-time is an important part of making sure an activity goes ahead as planned. While we reference minimum lead-times, we strongly encourage that people involved in this process plan for larger lead-times which should account for any unexpected delays in approval e.g. coordination with other contractor approvals.

The timeframes below are minimum lead/processing times for CAR and TMP applications.

ApplicationMinimum Timeframe
