Summary of Changes from Previous Version

In 2020, RMIT launched a new database driven policy management system and migrated its existing suite of policy documents into the new policy register. This is the first version of this document to be published using the new system. The document has been re-formatted (e.g. numbering conventions, fonts) to enable publication in the new database driven register, but is otherwise reflective of the approved version that was in effect at the time the new system/register was launched.


This document was first approved by the Vice-Chancellor’s Executive on 20 July 2017. The approved version of this document took effect on 14 August 2017 (the first effective date) and corresponds to version 1.0 as it appeared in the former policy register.
