Record keeping and the rules

The Act requires an association to make provision for the following matters, related to record keeping, in the rules:

  • the register of members of the association.
  • the custody of books and securities of the association.
  • the inspection by members of the association’s records and documents.

From 1 July 2019, if any of these matters are missing from the rules then the relevant clause of the prescribed model rules is deemed to apply to the association until action is taken to correct the rules. Refer to Consumer Protection’s website for more information.
