Master Builders Victoria (MBV) has been advised by the Registered Organisations Commission (ROC) that, in response to a Federal Senator’s Question on Notice (QON1862), the ROC has provided a redacted copy of the full Inquiry Report prepared for the Commissioner in relation to MBV. 

This full report is an internal ROC document provided for the Registered Organisations Commissioner and, it is important to note that this document had not been previously released publicly, or to MBV.  Instead, a letter informing MBV of the Inquiry’s findings was released to MBV, which was summarised in member communications on 26 June 2020. The information related to the Federal Senator’s Question on Notice (QON1862) can be found HERE, a copy of the full report can also be accessed at that link – see page 10 of the second document for download.

Members were previously advised by the President of MBV, Richard Hansen (see statement of 4 September 2020) that, in consideration of the issues raised through the ROC Inquiry regarding the mis-application of the MBV election rules, the recent commencement of the MBV 2020 elections and in the interests of best practice governance and its members, the MBV Board has chosen to enter into election mode until the 2020 elections are concluded - expected to be by late 2020.  This decision has been ratified by both the MBV Board and Council of Management.
