Announcement - Reconstitution of Industry Panels

13 August 2008

Industry panels deal with applications for awards or variations to awards, applications for the approval of enterprise agreements and dispute notifications arising in relevant industries. The Vice President, Justice Walton, has overarching responsibility for administration of the industry panel system and each panel is chaired by a Presidential Member of the Commission who allocates matters to the members of the panel.

A review was recently undertaken of industry panel arrangements and alterations were made reducing the number of panels from seven to four. In brief, there are now two metropolitan panels (Panels A & B) and two regional panels (Panels N & S).
