How to make a submission

You can make submissions in many ways—from a short letter detailing your views on a specific matter to a more extensive document covering a range of issues. Where possible, you should provide evidence, including relevant data and documentation, to support your views.


QPC is committed to transparent processes and prefers submissions to be made publicly available wherever possible.

Each submission, except for material provided in confidence, will be published on our website for other interested parties to read, review, and respond. Submissions will remain online indefinitely as public documents.

We will not publish material on our website that is offensive, potentially defamatory, or clearly beyond the scope of the inquiry or study in question.


If your submission contains genuinely confidential material, please note this on the front page and mark relevant sections as CONFIDENTIAL. Please provide another version that omits these confidential aspects so it can be made available on our website. Contact QPC for more advice if you are concerned.


Any personal information, such as home addresses and phone numbers, should not be included in the body of your submission.

You may wish to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym for privacy reasons. However, if you choose to remain anonymous, QPC may place less weight on your submission.


If you need information in your own language about making a submission, call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450 and ask to be connected to 07 3015 5122.
