Consultation on the future of OPD for marriage celebrants
Our department manages the Marriage Celebrants Program on behalf of the Australian Government. We are committed to periodically reviewing the program to ensure it is cost effective and efficient.
The legitimate aims of the program are to apply appropriate scrutiny to aspiring marriage celebrants, support the availability of marriage services across Australia, and regulate marriage celebrants’ performance to ensure professional, knowledgeable and legally correct marriage services for marrying couples.
