Governance and Advisory Board

The AusNCP Governance and Advisory Board (Board) provides advice and assistance to the AusNCP and its Independent Examiners, particularly in relation to the handling of complaints and identifying opportunities for promotional work. Members also use their own networks, events and publications to promote the Guidelines and the AusNCP’s services.

The Board helps to ensure that the AusNCP is visible, accessible, transparent and accountable, in accordance with its obligations under the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. Members may be called on to conduct procedural reviews of AusNCP complaints and may be consulted on various operational and administrative matters as needed.

The Board meets biannually and meeting minutes can be found below.
