Summary of Changes from Previous Version

On 1 July 2022 the Child Protection in Australian Aid-Funded Research procedure was revoked and relevant information was moved to the Child Safety policy.


On 7 February 2020 an administrative amendment was made to clause 21 of the Child Protection in Australian Aid-funded Research procedure to align with legislative changes by replacing the ‘Protected Disclosure Act 2012 (Vic)’ with the ‘Public Interest Disclosure Act 2012 (Vic)’.


An administrative amendment was made on 13 March 2018 to update the definition of Academic Unit approved by Academic Board at its meeting on 26 February 2018.


This Procedure was established on the date of approval recorded in its preamble section. On 1 February 2016 policies and procedures were moved to the University's new Policy Library. For all intents and purposes the current version of this document is reflective of that published in the Guide prior to the new system launch. The document has been subjected to reformatting, including the application of a new numbering system and section headings.
