Enforceable undertakings

An enforceable undertaking is a compliance tool that can be used as an alternative to litigation. Where it is in the public interest, the Commissioner may accept a written enforceable undertaking if:

  • the Commissioner reasonably believes that the person proposed to be subject to the undertaking has contravened a civil remedy provision of the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Act 2016;
  • entering into an enforceable undertaking is in the public interest and appropriate in all the circumstances; and
  • contravention is admitted, and the person proposed to be subject to the undertaking is willing to cooperate with the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC).
