A number of amendments have been made to correct typographical errors in the Fair Work Rules 2012 and to improve the workings of the Tribunal processes.

There is also a new form and a consequential amendment arising from the commencement of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment Regulations 2011 (No.1).

On 4 January 2012, the President of Fair Work Australia, after consulting with Fair Work Australia members, made the Fair Work Australia Amendment Rules 2012 (No. 1).

The Amendment Rules, which commence on the day after they are registered, amend the Fair Work Australia Rules 2010.
