How will my submission be used?
Submissions received by the Royal Commission will be considered by policy and legal staff assisting the Royal Commission, and used to inform the Commission's work.
The Royal Commission will not contact everyone who makes a submission, but will ensure that all submissions are documented and reviewed.
Will my submission be published?
Formal submissions to Royal Commissions are usually published. This can include submissions, or excerpts of submissions, in the interim or final reports, as well as on the website.
If you want all or part of your submission to be treated as confidential, make sure to indicate this in the submission form.
Please note that the Commission reserves the right to release and make use of any written submissions made during the course of the Commission, where it deems this to be appropriate. You will be contacted prior to any such use or publication.
