Notes to editors

About APEX

APEX was formed as part of the BSB's governance restructuring which has led to more executive-led policy development and decision making. APEX members are appointed to provide external and independent advice to BSB staff working on policy development or taking regulatory decisions on exemptions from qualification requirements or enforcement cases.
