ROCpod: Talking with the Registered Organisations Commission

Episode 10: Behind the scenes with the ROC

In our latest podcast episode we take listeners on a behind the scenes tour of the ROC. We speak to staff representing the investigations and compliance, financial reporting, and education teams to get an insight into the work they do to assist registered organisations, their branches and officers. 

You meet some of the people who work with registered organisations to:

  • Resolve compliance issues in advance of inquiries and investigations
  • Respond to whistleblower disclosures, including investigating the matter and liaising with relevant parties
  • Provide tailored advice to over 340 reporting units and their auditors to assist with financial reporting obligations
  • Publish resources which simplify compliance obligations.

The ROC is a small agency which works hard to provide both tailored assistance and general guidance to stakeholders.
