On 13 August 2018, the Government released draft external conduct standards that registered charities will need to comply with when operating outside Australia.

In addition to seeking written submissions on the draft regulations, Treasury will host face-to-face consultation sessions with interested parties to obtain feedback during the consultation period. The proposed dates and locations for these meetings are:

  • 27 August: Canberra
  • 30 August: Melbourne
  • 3 September: Sydney

If you are interested in attending a consultation meeting, please email ExternalConductStandards@treasury.gov.au by 5pm Friday 24 August 2018.
