The transfer of the functions of the Registered Organisations Commission to the General Manager of the Fair Work Commission happened on 6 March 2023.
We have now taken steps to commence an independent review of the regulation of registered organisations. The General Manager, in consultation with peak bodies, has appointed two former Members of the Commission to run the review. Our reviewers will be consulting with every registered organisation.
Our aim is to:
identify service delivery enablers, tools or products which could assist registered organisations to develop and embed good governance cultures and promote the democratic functioning of registered organisations
identify targeted opportunities to improve service delivery to organisations, including by enhancing efficiency and reducing regulatory burden through the digital lodgment of statutory obligations
assist with the design and development of a contemporary and best practice compliance and enforcement policy, including establishing a framework and criterion for the use of the Commission’s new compliance instruments (enforceable undertakings and infringement notices)
assist with establishing the 2023-2025 education, advice and assistance strategy tailored to stakeholder priorities, and
identify any barriers, including with the broader regulatory framework, to promoting best practice governance and the democratic functioning of registered organisations.
