Approved Codes of Practice (ACOP) provide practical guidance about how to comply with mandatory requirements in the WHS Act and WHS Regulations. Compliance with an ACOP is not mandatory. A duty holder can achieve the outcomes in an ACOP using equivalent or higher standards. However an Approved Code of Practice is admissible in proceedings as evidence of whether or not a duty has been met, so far as is reasonably practicable.
