A Registered Aboriginal Party (RAP) can be suspended if they fail to:
- consider or advise on applications for cultural heritage permits
- evaluate cultural heritage management plans
- perform a cultural heritage agreement
RAPs can also be suspended if they're:
- no longer a body corporate registered under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006
- placed under Special Administration
- enter liquidation
A RAP will receive 28 days' notice if Council plans to suspend its registration.
You can appeal the suspension of your RAP to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
