Review of the CATSI Act
As you may already be aware, the Minister for Indigenous Australians, the Hon Ken Wyatt, has announced a comprehensive review into theCorporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (CATSI Act) to be led by the National Indigenous Australian’s Agency (NIAA).
This review is wide-ranging and will address issues of interest to native title holders and Registered Native Title Bodies Corporates (RNTBCs). The Review will build on the previous Technical Review of the CATSI Act.
Discussion Papers, including one specific to RNTBCs, are scheduled for release in April 2020. The Discussion Papers will invite submissions from stakeholders and this will be an important way of informing the Government about your views.
I encourage you to join the mailing list to receive information and updates about the review and to participate in the review survey, which aims to identify the issues of concern for the CATSI sector, including RNTBCs. If you wish to complete the survey, please do so before its closing date of 14 February 2019.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations play a critical role in supporting native title holders, delivering services and achieving economic development. The right regulatory framework is important to support their operations. We encourage you to participate in the review and have your say.
