At AMSA we consult with our stakeholders in government, industry and the community on policy and regulatory change. We have a range of consultative committees and consultation approaches for engaging with our stakeholders. We use your feedback to inform our decision-making when we make improvements to our policies and activities.

The consultation process
When the consultation period ends, all responses are considered along with other information to help us make decisions, develop policy or finalise regulatory changes. We provide feedback either to you directly or in a consultation report. Please direct any questions about the consultation process to the contact officer for the relevant consultation project.
Submissions can be made by any organisation or individual to the project contacts listed on this page.
Our consultations are guided by principles set by the Australian Government’s Office of Best Practice Regulation. These principles recommend that a consultation project:
- aim to capture a diversity of stakeholders
- allow stakeholders sufficient time to provide considered responses
- provide stakeholders with sufficient information, and
- have its objectives clearly explained and provide feedback on how responses have been taken into consideration.
