Corporate Governance Statement

The RACQ Corporate Governance Statement (PDF 66KB) is current at 16 September 2021 and has been approved by the RACQ board.

The board of directors

The role of the board is to oversee and guide the management of RACQ with the aim of protecting and enhancing long-term member value. The board is responsible for ensuring effective governance practices and the overall performance and conduct of RACQ. A number of committees exist to assist this function.

Codes of conduct

Employees at all levels are required to conduct themselves with the highest ethical standards of corporate behaviour. Our directors code of conduct requires directors to behave ethically, act within the law, avoid conflicts of interest and act honestly in all business activities. Our employee code of conduct sets out the principles and standards for all employees.

Speak up framework

RACQ has established a whistleblower reporting framework to encourage and support speaking up when a person has reasonable grounds to suspect misconduct, illegal or inappropriate behaviours. The speak up and reporting process is easy, safe and secure through our independent external whistleblower hotline, Stopline.

More information can be found in the RACQ Whistleblower Policy (PDF, 262KB).

Constitution and bylaws

RACQ’s members have rights which are set out in RACQ’s Constitution (PDF, 300KB) and By-Laws (PDF, 134KB).

Remuneration, performance and assessment

Under the RACQ’s Constitution (PDF, 300KB), eligible members determine the aggregate remuneration payable to directors. The board then determines its individual allocation. Senior management remuneration is determined by market information provided by an independent expert.

We have a formal performance management system for all members of the senior management team. Management discuss their performance with the Group CEO every six months, and the board assesses the performance of the Group CEO.
