The Council engaged an independent research and policy agency, ACIL Allen Consultancy, to conduct research of external stakeholders of their perceptions of the Council’s purpose, role and functions within the regulatory system in New South Wales.

This qualitative and quantitative research was undertaken between February to May 2016 and the final report was received by the Council in June 2016.

The Council is currently reviewing and working on the research findings and responders’ suggestions. One of the many findings was that a significant proportion of responders were unclear about the Council’s roles. 

The research findings identified useful information about where the Council might improve its processes and engage more effectively with stakeholders. Other suggestions are outside of the Council’s jurisdiction and the Council will pass on these to other relevant bodies.

A number of the respondents used the survey to seek Council assistance on their complaint matter. Responder’s privacy was protected in this research and ACIL Allen removed any identifiers when providing the report to Council. Therefore if you still seek assistance in your complaint management please either contact your case manager at the Council or email

The Executive Summary for the final report can be downloaded by clicking here (PDF 300.9KB). The Council would like to thank each participant for their feedback and time in contributing to this valuable research.
