The External Conduct Standards have now been introduced. All charities that operate overseas, including those classified as Basic Religious Charities, must comply with the new Standards.
The Standards cover:
- How charities control their funds, goods and other resources
- The need for an annual review of overseas activities and record keeping
- Anti-fraud and anti-corruption guidelines
- Measures aimed at protecting vulnerable individuals
The ACNC will not require charities to submit information to the ACNC because of the new Standards, unless specifically requested.
