Draft guidelines for consultation

Published on 14 Mar 2019

The Commissioner has published his draft Reporting Directions and Public Interest Disclosure Guidelines for consultation purposes.

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 (PID Act) will replace the Whistleblowers Protection Act 1993. While a date has not yet been set for the commencement of the PID Act it is expected to come into operation in 2019.

Section 14 of the PID Act provides that the Commissioner may publish guidelines for the purpose of the PID Act. 

In anticipation of the commencement of the Act a draft of the guidelines has been developed. It is intended that the publication containing the guidelines will also contain mandatory reporting obligations issued in accordance with the ICAC Act.
