The Responsible ASIC Registered Agent - Webinar
Ensure you and your clients are compliant!
CorpSec Services has been offering this training webinar since August 2020. Over 450 ASIC Registered Agents, company compliance officers and ASIC administrators have attended this online training course.
The course is designed to provide ASIC Registered Agents with an in-depth understanding of their role and obligations as an agent in accordance with the ASIC Registered Agent Terms and Conditions dated 12 May 2020.
ASIC places an obligation on registered agents to keep up-to-date, comply and implement processes within their businesses that ensures compliance with their registered agent responsibilities.

Natasha - webinar attendee
“Thank you for putting together The Resp. Agent Course. I can't believe this is something ASIC has not yet done. I have worked at a few practices looking after corporate compliance and I'm shocked at the level of knowledge required in this area and the premise that it is just an 'admin' role. Well done!”
