The University operates in a complex legislative and compliance environment.

Legislation and compliance

The University operates in a complex legislative and compliance environment with obligations under a range of State and Commonwealth legislation, regulatory requirements, subscription to voluntary codes and internal polices and frameworks.

The University strives for compliance with all of its obligations, with a risk based approach to prioritisation and implementation of changes and developments in the complex ever evolving landscape.

Our governance structure, management reporting framework, policies, procedures, staff training and assurance processes assist the University in meeting its legislative and compliance requirements. This work is supported by the entire Council Services and Chancellery team. The Legal Office and Risk and Assurance Services facilitate the compliance process through advice, monitoring and reporting. Risk and Assurance Services maintains a compliance register (PDF, 445KB) to ensure ongoing compliance with key legislation.

All staff have a role in continuing compliance by:

  • being aware of compliance obligations that affect their role
  • reporting gaps that can lead to and/or actual breaches in compliance obligations.
