The Commission aims to maintain a high level of transparency with submissions, sharing them publicly soon after they are received.

Submissions on current inquiries can be viewed below. All other submissions are available via completed inquiries. The number 'Sub #' relates to submissions on consultation/issues papers and 'DR #' for submissions on draft reports.
