Co-operative Legislation

 

Co-ops NSW, together with the other Federations across Australia, has been actively engaged in endeavouring to obtain national legislation for the sector. An Act has been passed in NSW and once adopted in the other states new legislation will operate nationally – new Co-operatives National Law.

Co-ops NSW personnel are usually available to meet with management and/or Directors to discuss co-operative issues such as updating rules, managing records under the Co-operative legislation, assisting in setting up networking amongst other co-operatives, liaising with the regulator, finding other organisations with whom to share training costs, etc..

Ask us and we’ll see what we can do to assist. Contact the Secretary Richard O’Leary via email or by telephone on 02 6562 4116.

The Federation also provides services to foreign co-operatives wishing to operate in NSW.
