25 July 2017 The AICD has made a submission on the Corporations Amendment (Modernisation of Members Registration) Bill 2017 (Bill). The Bill proposes to amend s 169 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) to include an email address as information that must be contained in the register of members of a company. Currently, s 169 only requires a register to contain the member’s name and address. The AICD did not support the Bill due to concerns over the potential legal and practical implications of the Bill, including matters relating to cyber-security and privacy.
