Consultation
Introduction
The Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission (the Commission) received the
terms of reference for an inquiry into aspects of the Wrongs Act on 30 May 2013. The
Commission published an issues paper in July 2013, which outlined:

the scope of the inquiry

how to make a submission

the Commission’s consultation process

the inquiry timetable.
The issues paper invited participants to register an interest in the inquiry and to make
submissions. The Commission received 28 registrations of interest and 18 written
submissions before the release of the draft report. A further seven submissions were
received following the release of the draft report (section A.2).
The Commission consulted widely (including meetings, visits, email correspondence and
telephone conversations) with Commonwealth, state and local government
departments and agencies, representatives of the insurance sector, legal practitioners,
associations, academics and clubs (section A.3). The Commission also engaged with
inquiry participants through Facebook and Twitter.
The Commission thanks those people and organisations that participated in its
consultation process and/or made a submission to the inquiry. The Commission
appreciates the quality of the submissions, reflecting the thought and effort which has
been put into their preparation. The Commission also thanks Dr Genevieve Grant,
Monash University, for providing comments on a draft of chapter 3 prior to release of
the draft report.
