Governance of the National Regulators Community of Practice

National Steering Committee

The NRCoP is a unified national structure with chapters in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria, Western Australia. The NRCoP also welcomes virtual attendance by Aotearoa New Zealand regulators through its partnership with G-Reg, the Aotearoa New Zealand Government Regulatory Practice Initiative.

As the NRCoP’s auspice, ANZSOG is advised by a National Committee and Chapter Committees, which include regulators from the Australian, state/territory and local governments. The national committee also includes two representatives from G-Reg.

In March 2021 the national committee restructured to reflect its increasing maturity as a national and trans-Tasman community. It now comprises:
