The Land Surveyors’ Licensing Board of Western Australia is constituted under Section 4 of the Licensed Surveyors Act 1909.
The Board consists of six members comprising the Surveyor General ex officio, one member nominated by the Chief Executive, one member nominated by the Minister, two members who are licensed and hold practising certificates nominated by the WA Institution of Surveyors and one member who is a member of the teaching staff in the course of surveying of an educational institution nominated by the educational institution.
The Board is a member of the Council of Reciprocating Surveyors Boards of Australian and New Zealand (CRSBANZ). The Council established mutual reciprocity and recognition of registration in 1892. This model has effectively allowed land surveyors in Australia and New Zealand to transfer their registration between jurisdictions with a minimum of administrative constraints.

The Board has reviewed its role and responsibility to the government and community of Western Australia and adopted a Revised Charter.
The Board is required under section 25C of the Licensed Surveyors Act 1909 to on or before 30 June in each year submit to the Minister an annual report of its proceedings ending on 31 December.
