Australia: Govt. publishes Issues Paper for public consultation as part of the first statutory review of the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act

"Review of Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018: Issues Paper", August 2022


The Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) (the Act) requires that a review be undertaken three years after the commencement of the Act. The review is to be completed within one year and the report is to be tabled in the Parliament. (The British law underwent review in 2019 at the initiative of the UK Government.)


The review is to be conducted in an open, transparent and consultative manner. This Issues Paper initiates that process by inviting written submissions on the issues to be considered as the primary form of input.


This review invites your submissions and comments in response to this Issues Paper. Consultation questions are set out below to guide feedback. It is not required that you specifically address a question, or all of the questions.


The review will also put out an additional targeted survey for reporting entities to capture data on their experience in completing and submitting modern slavery statements under the Act.

The consultation period closes at midnight (AEDT) on Tuesday 22 November 2022. Submissions cannot be accepted after that date. The online consultation link also ceases on that date.
