Summary

Amends the Native Title Act 1993 to respond to the Federal Court’s decision in McGlade v Native Title Registrar [2017] FCAFC 10 by: confirming the legal status and enforceability of agreements which have been registered by the Native Title Registrar on the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements without the signature of all members of a registered native title claimant (RNTC); enabling the registration of agreements which have been made but have not yet been registered; and ensuring that area Indigenous Land Use Agreements can be registered without requiring every member of the RNTC to be a party to the agreement.
