A warning is an enforcement power in the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012 (Cth).

We may issue a charity with a warning that they are not meeting their obligations, and explain what action we can take if they do not address the issues.

This power is used to address general non-compliance on 'federally regulated entities', but can be used on any charity that hasn't complied with an External Conduct Standard.
