Once your application for a registered person account has been approved by the Clean Energy Regulator you need to apply for an account upgrade from a ‘registered person account’ to a ‘power station account’ in the REC Registry. This upgrade is necessary for you to access the application for power station accreditation form.
The agency will have provided you with a username via email, which will enable you to access the REC Registry and upgrade your account.
As the creator of the registered person account, you will be the account administrator for that account.
It is recommended that you add other users from your organisation to your account, and ensure each user has an appropriate level of access to the account. It is important for you to ensure that you also disable your account users where necessary e.g. staff leaving your organisation or if there is a change in their role or responsibilities.
Only account administrators can add users to a REC Registry account and update users’ permissions.
Account administrators should never share their username or password. Instead, the account administrator should
grant access and upgrade user permissions as required. This means there can be multiple users under the one account with varying permission levels.
New users will not be active in the system until they have logged in, updated their password, selected a secret question and answer, and accepted the terms and conditions.
