2017 Review

The Australian National Contact Point (ANCP) is currently under review.

On 7 June 2017, the Treasury appointed Alex Newton as the independent reviewer. Ms Newton is a specialist in responsible business and human rights, and brings extensive experience working with the public, private and NGO sectors.

In formulating her findings and recommendations to Government, the independent reviewer will consult with interested stakeholders across the public, private and NGO sectors in line with the terms of reference. She will also consult with the OECD, and consider international best practice for national contact point structures in other OECD countries. The online consultation for this review is now closed.

The reviewer will present her findings and recommendations to the Treasury in September 2017.

In addition, the outcomes may be used to inform the OECD National Contact Point Peer Review, a voluntary process in which Australia is currently scheduled to participate in 2019.
