Public inquiries

Public inquiries can vary greatly in issue and scope. The wide-ranging charter of the Commission is reflected in the inquiry program set by the Australian Government. The Treasurer, in consultation with other Ministers (and State and Territory governments where relevant), determines which inquiries the Commission will conduct and the terms of reference for each inquiry.

Public inquiries give the opportunity for all points of view in the community to be heard and considered. All individuals, firms, groups and organisations with an interest in an inquiry can participate in the inquiry. This may be through written submissions and attendance at hearings, workshops and other forums when these are held for the inquiry. Learn more about the public inquiry process
