Reportable Conduct Scheme review

The Victorian Government introduced the Reportable Conduct Scheme (the Scheme) to make organisations safer for children by improving organisational responses to allegations of child abuse and child-related misconduct.

The Scheme is established under the Child Wellbeing and Safety Act 2005, which requires:

16ZN Review of reportable conduct scheme after 5 years of operation 

  1. The Minister must cause a review to be made of the first 5 years of operation of the reportable conduct scheme and must cause a copy of a report of the review to be laid before each House of Parliament on or before 1 July 2023. 
  2. A review under subsection (1) must include consideration as to whether the reportable conduct scheme should be expanded to apply to any other entities.

The department is reviewing the operation of the Scheme on behalf of the Minister. The Terms of Reference for the review are available in the related resources box below.

The report of the review will be uploaded to this page after it has been tabled in Parliament.

The Commission for Children and Young People administers, oversees and monitors the Reportable Conduct Scheme.
