Use this form (Form F16) to make an application for approval of an enterprise agreement (other than a greenfields agreement) with the Fair Work Commission.
This form and any supporting information should be lodged within 14 days of the agreement being made.
You can use the online application form in our new online lodgment service to fill in and lodge your application. You can also attach any supporting documents (including the Form F17) and information through the new online lodgment service.
To complete your application, you will need:
- all the information required to fill in Form F16 (application for approval of an enterprise agreement)
- a completed Form F17 (employer's declaration in support)
- a copy of the notice of employee representational rights that was given to employees during bargaining
- a correctly signed copy of the agreement
- copies of any materials given to employees
- any other supporting material, including documents referred to in your application
