The Charitable Fundraising Regulation 2015 commenced on 1 September 2015. A copy of the new Regulation is available from the NSW Legislation website at www.legislation.nsw.gov.au.
The new Regulation includes a number of amendments, including new exemption for certain charities, and has been informed by stakeholders submissions lodged as part of the Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) process, which concluded on 24 June 2015.
Further information on the outcome of the RIS process, including the issues raised by stakeholders, is outlined in the Report on Public Consultation, which was prepared by the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing.
Minor amendments were also made to the Charitable Fundraising Authority Conditions, which were approved by the Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation on 31 July 2015. These conditions now apply to new fundraising authorities issued from 1 September 2015.
