Submissions for this consultation closed on Tuesday, 22 October 2019


The Australian Attorney-General's Department's Marriage Law and Celebrants Section (MLCS) administers the Marriage Celebrants Program. The program is cost-recovered in accordance with Australian Government frameworks and guidelines which require government to be efficient in the charging arrangements and associated activities. Part of MLCS's role involves ensuring the program is cost effective and efficient, and minimises regulatory burden.

MLCS invites the views of marriage celebrants, celebrant associations/networks, prospective marriage celebrants, registered training organisations, and registries of births, deaths and marriages to provide feedback on opportunities to streamline the program. MLCS has prepared the Marriage Celebrants Program Review survey to seek your feedback on:

  • the registration process for aspiring marriage celebrants
  • ongoing professional development.

The survey opens on Tuesday, 1 October and closes on Tuesday, 22 October. The following paper provides more information to help you complete the survey:
