The Australian Industrial Relations Commission Award Simplification Panel was disbanded as of 1 September 1999. Members of the specialist panel have been reassigned to Industry panels. Established in February 1998, and headed by Senior Deputy President Marsh, the panel was responsible for implementing the process of simplifying federal awards to the twenty allowable award matters specified in s89A(2) of the Workplace Relations Act 1996.

All Commissioners will now broadly assume the task of simplifying awards. According to the AIRC President, Justice Giudice, the change will ultimately extend expertise in award simplification throughout the Commission and implement efficiencies by allowing simplification hearings to be heard at the same time as other proceedings.
