1.1.L.10 Listed

Definition

For the purposes of the National Redress Scheme, a defunct institution may be declared by the Minister of Social Services to be listed for a participating jurisdiction if the defunct institution is a non-government institution and is not a participating institution.

The effect of a defunct institution being listed is that State or Territory it is listed for will be liable for redress for that institution, as the funder of last resort (where an institution from the relevant State or Territory institution is determined to be equally responsible with the defunct institution).

Institutions cannot be listed by the Minister unless he or she is satisfied the Commonwealth, participating Territory, or participating State agrees to the institution being listed.
