Some rules listed in the CATSI Act can be chosen or not chosen for your PBC’s rule book. These are exemptible rules. This means that if some rules do not suit a PBC, they can apply to ORIC to remove them from their PBC rule book.
In this policy statement, the Registrar of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporations (the Registrar) provides guidance on when an exemption will be granted and the circumstances in which the Registrar may grant.
