Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993
If the Regulator suspends all of the trustees of a superannuation entity, the Regulator must appoint a constitutional corporation or an individual to act as the trustee during the period of the suspension. The appointee is called the acting trustee .
If the Regulator removes all of the trustees of a superannuation entity, the Regulator must appoint a constitutional corporation or an individual to act as the trustee until the vacancy in the position of trustee is filled. The appointee is called the acting trustee .
The Regulator must not appoint an individual as the acting trustee of a superannuation entity unless the governing rules of the entity provide that the sole or primary purpose of the entity is the provision of old-age pensions.
(a) there is a group of individual trustees of a superannuation entity; and
(b) the Regulator suspends or removes all of the trustees; and
(c) the Regulator is satisfied that any one or more of the persons who were suspended or removed is a fit and proper person to be appointed as the acting trustee;
this Act does not prevent the Regulator from so appointing that person.
In deciding whether it is satisfied as mentioned in paragraph (4)(c) in relation to a person who is or has been a trustee of a registrable superannuation entity, the Regulator may also take into account any criteria for fitness and propriety that are relevant to the trustee set out in the prudential standards.
