PBCs (Prescribed Body / Bodies Corporate)

Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs) are a group of people chosen by native title applicants to manage their rights and interests before a decision is made by the court. After a native title decision is made, the PBC becomes a Registered Native Title Bodies Corporate (RNTBC). Whilst officially known as RNTBCs, these groups are still called PBCs. These groups have a job under the Native Title Act 1993 (NTA) to hold, protect and manage native title in their specific area. PBCs look after country and culture according to the wished of the members and native title group.
