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?

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.

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.
