ASIC's role in super
ASIC is the regulator responsible for the Corporations Act 2001 and the ASIC Act 2001.

ASIC is also responsible for administering parts of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993.
As the conduct and disclosure regulator, ASIC is focused on the behaviours of trustees impacting consumers.
