Review of the roles and functions of native title organisationsThe Native Title Act 1993 established the regulatory and legal framework for the operation of native title organisations. However the native title system has evolved considerably in the 20 years since the Act was passed.

Based on the intentions of the Act, native title holders should have the opportunity to consider their options and make informed decisions about their direction.

At the request of the Federal government, Deloitte Access Economics has reviewed the system and found that, while it is moving in a positive direction, the Act gives only limited consideration to how native title property rights and interests can deliver enjoyment to the holders post-determination.

The review found that, at present, this opportunity is often lacking and that, without adequately functioning native title organisations, the system will be fragile and the ambitions of stakeholders (including native title holders, governments, industry and the wider community) will be impeded.
