Our Premises

The Commission is aware that having our office located on the first floor of a building with no elevator is an issue.  Our officers ask visitors if they have any access issues before arranging meetings and will willingly provide an alternative venue with universal access when requested.

The Commission would be pleased to receive feedback on how we can improve our services, particularly for people with disabilities.  Please contact the Commission on telephone 9535 0000 with your feedback.

Text Resizing

You can make the text larger or smaller on this site by using the increase ( increase-button ) and decrease ( decrease-button ) size buttons that appear on the upper left area of each page, next to the little printer icon.


Printing a Webpage

When you see the printer icon (  print-button  ) this means you can print the current page. For convenience we have made sure that all web elements are stripped from the text being printed, allowing better legibility.

Exchanging files between previous releases of Microsoft Office and the 2007 Microsoft Office release.

Microsoft has added new file formats to Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 to reduce file size, improve security and reliability, and enhance integration with external sources. To help ensure that you can exchange documents between Microsoft Office releases, Microsoft has developed a Compatibility Pack for the Office Word, Office Excel, and Office PowerPoint 2007 File Formats.
