                     (a)  the FWC may decide not to publish the information; and

                     (b)  if it does so, it must instead publish a summary of the information which contains sufficient detail to allow a reasonable understanding of the substance of the information (without disclosing anything that is confidential or commercially sensitive).

156E  Determining applications to list a standard MySuper product

                     (b)  the first stage criteria; and

the FWC is satisfied that including the product on the list would be in the best interests of default fund employees to whom modern awards apply or a particular class of those employees.

156F  First stage criteria

                     (a)  the appropriateness of the MySuper product’s long term investment return target and risk profile;

                     (c)  the appropriateness of the fees and costs associated with the MySuper product, given:

             (2)  The FWC must ensure that the following persons have a reasonable opportunity to make written submissions (including submissions requesting that a particular superannuation fund be specified in the term in relation to a standard MySuper product) to the FWC in relation to the default fund term of the award:

                     (a)  an employee and employer that are covered by the modern award;

                     (b)  an organisation that is entitled to represent the industrial interests of one or more employees or employers that are covered by the award;

                     (c)  if the award includes an outworker term—an organisation that is entitled to represent the industrial interests of one or more outworkers to whom the outworker term relates.

             (3)  If:

                     (a)  a person or body (whether or not a person referred to in subsection (2)) makes a written submission in relation to the default fund term of a modern award; and

                     (b)  the person or body refers to a particular superannuation fund in the submission; and

                     (c)  the person or body has an interest in relation to that superannuation fund;

then the person or body must disclose that interest in the submission.

             (4)  The FWC must publish any submission that is made.

156H  Default fund term must specify certain superannuation funds

             (1)  After reviewing the default fund term of a modern award, the FWC must make a determination varying the term:

                     (b)  to specify at least 2, but no more than 15, superannuation funds in relation to standard MySuper products that satisfy the second stage test.

Note:          See subsection (3) for when the default fund term may specify more than 15 superannuation funds.

             (2)  A standard MySuper product satisfies the second stage test if:

                     (a)  it is on the Default Superannuation List; and

                     (b)  the FWC is satisfied that specifying a superannuation fund in relation to the product in the default fund term of the modern award would be in the best interests of the default fund employees to whom the modern award applies, taking into account:

                              (i)  any submissions that were made in relation to the default fund term of the award; and

                             (ii)  any other matter the FWC considers relevant.

             (3)  The default fund term may specify more than 15 superannuation funds in relation to standard MySuper products that satisfy the second stage test if, taking into account the range of occupations of employees covered by the modern award, the FWC is satisfied it is warranted.

156J  Variation to comply with section 149D

                   If, at the time of the 4 yearly review, the default fund term of a modern award does not comply with section 149D, the FWC must make a determination varying the term so that it does.

156K  Transitional authorisation for certain superannuation funds

             (1)  The FWC may make a transitional authorisation in relation to a superannuation fund (other than a superannuation fund referred to in subsection 149D(1), (1A), (2), (3) or (4)) if, at the time of the 4 yearly review, the FWC is satisfied that it is appropriate to make the authorisation.

             (2)  When the schedule is made, it must specify any employer MySuper product that the FWC has determined under section 156P is to be included on the schedule.

             (7)  Only one application in relation to an employer MySuper product may be made under subsection (1) in the period that:

156P  FWC to determine applications

156Q  The first stage test

             (3)  The FWC must publish any submission that is made.

156S  The second stage test

                   An employer MySuper product satisfies the second stage test if the FWC is satisfied that including the product on the Schedule of Approved Employer MySuper Products would be in the best interests of default fund employees of an employer to which the product relates, or a particular class of those employees, taking into account:

                     (a)  any submissions that were made in relation to whether the product satisfies the second stage test; and

                     (b)  any other matter the FWC considers relevant.
