In October 2014 the Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC) was asked to examine and report on how the law can better prevent organised crime and criminal organisations from infiltrating occupations and industries.
Regulatory regimes include licensing, registration requirements and fit and proper person tests.
The VLRC reviewed various lawful occupations and industries in Victoria and elsewhere:
- to find out which regulatory regimes are effective
- to develop principles for assessing the risk of organised crime infiltrating a lawful occupation or industry.
The Commission published a consultation paper in June 2015, requesting submissions. The consultation paper and the submissions can be downloaded from the links below.

The Commission completed its report in February 2016. The report was tabled in Parliament on 25 May 2016. A link to the report is below.
