In this submission, AIATSIS addresses the scope of the 2020 CATSI Act Review. As the number of Registered Native Title Bodies Corporate (RNTBC) continues to grow, the proposed review is a timely opportunity to address some of the outstanding issues surrounding RNTBCs and their obligations under the Native Title Act as well as the need for greater autonomy and self-government in the future. This submission contains a number of recommendations for addressing these issues, focusing particularly on revising the corporate model requirement for native title groups, and the creation of a separate division of the CATSI Act for native title corporations.
