Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The AusNCP is currently monitoring the progress of COVID-19 and how this impacts our daily business. Due to the current circumstances it is likely our timeframes will be delayed and we remain in contact with stakeholders regarding any procedural delays. Businesses are encouraged to utilise our new OECD Guidelines summary checklist as a tool to support high quality decisions during this period of social and economic change.
