Frequently Asked Questions - Applying for CURFs - Who can qualify as a Responsible Officer?
 

ABS legislation requires that the Responsible Officer for an organisation must submit an Undertaking before CURF access can be granted by ABS.

The Responsible Officer is that person legally accountable for use of CURFs by their organisation.

Who can be an Responsible Officer:

  • for universities: a Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Pro Vice-Chancellor or University Registrar
  • for government departments: a Secretary of Department, Head of Agency or equivalent, as agreed with the ABS
  • for private sector organisations: a person who has the same legal responsibility for the actions of the entity as a Departmental Secretary does for a Department. This will usually be someone with the status of CEO, Company Secretary or Managing Director
