On 20 December 2017, the Assistant Minister to the Treasurer, the Hon. Michael Sukkar MP, announced the legislated five-year review of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012 (Cth) and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (Consequential and Transitional) Act 2012 (Cth), both of which commenced operation in December 2012.

The Review of the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) legislation (ACNC Legislation 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 ACNC Legislation Review will be conducted by an independent panel and guided by the Terms of Reference

Consultation will be conducted through a public submission process and panel consultations. Stakeholders can also provide informal comments by email to acncsecretariat@acnclegislationreview.com.au.
