Australian National Contact Point: Procedures Consultation
The Law Council welcomes the updated Australian National Contact Point Complaint Procedures (AusNCP Procedures) and considers the proposed changes to be a significant improvement.
Particularly, the Law Council notes with approval the appointment of an Independent Examiner (Examiner) to manage all complaints brought to the AusNCP. The Law Council warmly welcomes the appointment of Mr John Southalan to this important position, noting that he is formerly of the Law Council’s Business and Human Rights Committee and has been a highly valued member.
