Search Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements

Under the Native Title Act, the Registrar is responsible for maintaining the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUAs), which contains information about ILUAs that have been accepted for registration.
The register entry for each ILUA must include:

  • a description of the area covered by the agreement
  • the name of each party to the agreement and the address at which the party can be contacted
  • if the agreement specifies the period during which it will operate — that period
  • if the agreement includes any statements regarding extinguishment, the validation or doing of future acts, contracting out of the ‘right to negotiate’ provisions of the Native Title Act, or changing the effect of ‘intermediate period acts’ on native title — a reference to that fact, setting out any such statements

The Registrar must remove details of the ILUA from the Register if:

  • there is an approved determination of native title over the ILUA area and certain conditions exist, and the Court has not ordered that the ILUA should remain on the Register
  • a party tells the Registrar in writing that the agreement has expired
  • all parties tell the Registrar in writing that they wish to terminate the agreement
  • the Federal Court orders the Registrar to remove the details of the agreement

If you have a question about a particular ILUA, please contact the parties to the agreement identified on the register extract for the ILUA.
