We are committed to the principle of sound and responsible corporate governance. The Board of Commissioners (Board) is responsible for the overall corporate governance and stewardship of the Insurance Commission.
The powers, functions and duties of the Board are set out in the Insurance Commission of Western Australia Act 1986. Commissioners of the Board are appointed by the Governor on the nomination of the Minister.
The Minister responsible for the Insurance Commission is the Hon Ben Wyatt MLA, Treasurer; Minister for Finance; Energy; Aboriginal Affairs.
The Chief Executive is a member of the Board and is responsible for managing the day-to-day operation of the Insurance Commission.
We are committed to demonstrating high standards of governance and conduct, which are reflected in our Code of Conduct, the WA Government Public Sector Code of Ethics and What We Value.
What We Value

To achieve this we strive to:

The Board has established an Audit and Risk Committee to assist the Board to discharge its corporate governance responsibilities.
