The LIV comments on the revised Code of Conduct for Registered Migration Agents

The LIV comments on the revised Code of Conduct for Registered Migration Agents

The Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) has in a memo to the Law Council of Australia (LCA) provided comments on the revised Code of Conduct for Registered Migration Agents.

The submission acknowledges that the revised code is an improvement. However, it also notes that there was insufficient compliance in relation to providing receipts, cost agreements, understanding conflict of inerest, and providing advice in areas where agents are unfamiliar.

The submission ultimately recommends that further training and guidance should be provided to migration agents, as well as revision of the code.
