You are invited to comment on the proposed draft Co-operatives National Regulations for the Co-operatives National Law.
All States and Territories have agreed to create a uniform regulatory system for co-operatives by passing a template law or consistent legislation. The template law is called the Co‑operatives National Law (CNL) and it provides for the making of national regulations on uniform matters between states and territories which either apply the co-operatives law or pass alternate consistent legislation.
NSW Fair Trading is hosting the publication and consultation in respect of the National Regulations through its website.
The draft Co-operatives National Regulations, once approved through the Council of Australian Governments Legislative and Governance Forum on Consumer Affairs, will be made by New South Wales.
The CNL is contained in the Co-operatives (Adoption of National Law) Act 2012 and it can be accessed from the NSW legislation website at www.legislation.nsw.gov.au
View or download the Draft Co-operatives National Regulations (PDF size: 456kb) and the Summary guide (PDF size: 509kb) which explains the consultation process for the draft Co-operatives National Regulations and outlines the relationship with the CNL.
If you are unable to download the Co-operatives National Regulations or Summary Guide, please contact 13 32 20.
Submissions may be made by email, fax or mail and will close on 7 January 2013
