The Department of Consumer and Employment Protection (DoCEP) of Western Australia invited the (then) Office of the Registrar of Aboriginal Corporations (ORAC) to make submissions on the draft Associations Incorporation Bill 2006 (the Green Bill).
ORAC focused particularly on matters relating to:
- exclusion from corporations legislation
- incorporation and transfer of incorporation
- winding up and cancellation of incorporation
- certain remedial measures available to the commissioner.
ORAC's only recommendation was to prescribe the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (the CATSI Act) in the Bill's regulations, ensuring that organisations who would become incorporated under the Green Bill could transfer to the CATSI Act if they were eligible.
