1.1.L.10 Listed

Definition

For the purposes of the National Redress Scheme, a defunct institution may be declared by the Minister 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 the Minister for Social Services has declared a participating State or Territory is liable for redress, as the funder of last resort for one or more defunct non-participating non-government institutions (where an institution from the relevant jurisdiction 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.
