Registered agent terms and conditions
We have introduced terms and conditions to the registration of ASIC registered agents.
Registered agents need to confirm they have read and agree to the ASIC Registered Agent Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) which govern their use of our registry services.
What do I have to do?
New registered agents
All applicants are required to read and agree to the T&Cs when applying to become a registered agent.
This is a requirement when lodging the Form RA01 Notification to register, change details of, or cease as an agent.
Existing registered agents
If you are an ASIC registered agent and wish to continue in that role, you need to read and agree to the ASIC Registered Agent Terms and Conditions.
You will need to provide some details, including your name, email address, and registered agent number.
Existing registered agents may instead choose to notify us that they wish to cancel their status as a registered agent. You can use the link below and when prompted, select 'I wish to cancel my status as an ASIC registered agent'.
If you represent companies and wish to cancel your status as an ASIC registered agent, you must also submit a Form 361 Notification of a registered agent to cease acting for a company for each company you represent.
Why are we doing this?
The T&Cs describe the rights and responsibilities around being a registered agent, including the:
- eligibility criteria to be a registered agent
- grounds on which ASIC may cancel a registered agent status
- requirements around lodging documents and lodging online, and
- expectations of registered agents lodging on behalf of a company.
By better communicating the requirements to be a registered agent and strengthening our compliance work, we hope to better inform new and current registered agents about their obligations and promote the integrity of our registers.
If you have any questions about the T&Cs, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
