The LIV's Technology and Innovation Section (TIS) has made a submission calling for temporary measures around electronic signatures and document execution to be made permament.

The submission to the Senate Economic Reference Committee' s Inquiry into the Treasury Laws Amendment (2021 Measures No.1) Bill 2021 (Cth) calls for the largely successful amendments under the Corporations (Coronavirus Economic Response) Determination No 3 2021 (Cth) that provided short-term regulatory relief to facilitate the continuation of business and mitigated the economic impact of the pandemic, to be introduced on a permanent basis.

The TIS has also called for clarification to the explantory memorandum that non-compliance with new provisions does not equal legal invalidity; strict application of the provisions 'reasonable opportunity to participate' and harmonisation  of  the  presently  divergent  approaches by states and territories to electronic signature and remote witnessing requirements.
