Regulatory Action Cooperation and Support Policy

On this page

This policy assists AFSA to investigate alleged misconduct in circumstances where more than one person is involved while supporting those who cooperate in an investigation and/or prosecution of someone involved in misconduct, fraud or other alleged criminal conduct.

The principles underpinning the policy are as follows:

  • assistance and support will only be considered when a person has fully and truthfully cooperated with AFSA
  • AFSA does not have the power to grant immunity from prosecution
  • several factors will be considered when offering a Letter of Comfort, preparing joint submissions in civil cases, and cooperating with the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) in criminal cases.
