The Government is required to undertake a review of the Australian Charities and Not for profits Commission Act 2012 and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (Consequential and Transitional) Act 2012 after their first five years of operation. This review presents an opportunity to evaluate the performance of the legislative framework, the regulation of the sector and to identify any improvements that can be made.
The Government is committed to making Australia’s not-for-profit sector stronger and recognises the crucial role the ACNC plays in ensuring the sector continues to thrive.
A review panel will be established to conduct the review. Mr Patrick McClure AO will chair the panel joined by Mr Greg Hammond OAM , Ms Su McCluskey, and Dr Matthew Turnour. The panel will be supported by a Secretariat.
The review panel will also conduct roundtables across the country to hear from interested stakeholders.
