Changes to Native Title legislation affecting Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs)
In February 2021, the Australian Government passed the Native Title Legislation Amendment Act 2021. This Amendment Act makes changes to the Native Title Act 1993 and the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006. The Government also made changes that affect PBCs in the Registered Native Title Bodies Corporate Legislation Amendment Regulations 2021 to support the Amendment Act. PBCs are required to amend their rule books to reflect the changes to the law. Information on the changes and what PBCs need to do can be found in the following documents.
