ACNC compliance

In May 2019, we announced the Australian Charities Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) had launched an investigation into the RACP board governance and culture. This followed a number of submissions from various sources over an extended period of time.

As an outcome of this investigation, we entered into a Voluntary Compliance Agreement with the ACNC. The RACP Board is committed to working closely with the ACNC to ensure the best possible outcome for the College.

Note: Progress Report dates have been revised due to the resourcing impact on the College as a result of the unexpected Extraordinary General Meeting and the COVID-19 pandemic. The initial progress reporting timeframes were re-baselined from March to May 2020, which the ACNC has accepted and approved.
