The author of this paper has been involved in the process since the Taxation Institute of Australia approached the Commissioner of Taxation in 1992 to suggest that the 1942 legislation was outdated and that a review of the regime for regulating tax practitioners should be undertaken.

- the code of professional conduct
- the disciplinary powers.
