A new resource for Principal Officers of Notifying Authorities is now available

Node Title

31 August 2018

On 31 August 2018, the Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) and the Public Sector Commission (PSC) issued a joint publication titled 'Notifying Misconduct - A guide for Principal Officers of Notifying Authorities' (the Guide).

The guide has been developed to assist Principal Officers with practical information about: 

  • their obligations under the Corruption Crime and Misconduct Act 2003 (the CCM Act); 
  • what should be contained in a notification; and 
  • steps that public authorities should take in processing allegations of misconduct raised with or within the authority.

This document supersedes the Notification of misconduct in Western Australia: A joint information resource and revokes the CCC Guidelines for Notification of Serious Misconduct issued under the CCM Act, section 30, on 1 July 2015. The revocation of the Guidelines removes the categories of serious misconduct, with notifications to be made as soon as reasonably practicable.

If you have any questions about the updates to this Guide, please contact the CCC on (08) 9215 4888.
