All incorporated Associations that meet the definition of a trading or financial corporation must comply with the whistleblower protection regime.
Incorporated associations or other bodies corporate are not subject to the requirement in the Corporations Act to have a whistleblower policy from 1 January 2020. This is because the requirement to have a whistleblower policy only applies to public companies, large proprietary companies, and proprietary companies that are the trustees of registrable superannuation entities.
However, whistleblower laws will still apply to incorporated associations.
