    Adoption: 2012-05-18 | Date of entry into force: 2013 | AUS-2012-L-93160

    This Act implements the Co-operatives National Law (CNL). The CNL is a template model of legislation drafted to continue the important principles of co-operation developed by the International Co-operative Alliance and to implement modern principles of corporate governance and accountability similar to requirements for other corporate entities. By aligning co-operatives laws on corporate governance and accountability more closely with laws regarding companies, it is expected that co-operatives will be able to compete on a level playing field with these entities.
