*** NAPFA Constitution and Policies
NAPFA provides a service to the Prospectors and Fossickers of NSW and the ACT, and represents them and their interests as a peak body at various levels.
NAPFA makes recommendations and deals with legislation and regulation, which being NAPFA’s core role is reflected in the objects of the association, its goals and its code of conduct. NAPFA’s credibility in these forums is essential to the running of, and the effectiveness of the association.
This is directly reflected by the actions and behaviours of NAPFA’s members.
Prospectors and Fossickers operate mostly in the public arena, they must comply with multiple Acts and Regulations where environmental sensitivities and competing interests are high. Any adverse actions and behaviour by members is more easily recognised, detected and published by others, which elevates the risk of damage to NAPFA’s credibility.
There exists a significant security risk to the associations members, as they search for and recover valuable commodities such as gold and gems. This attracts criminal elements to focus on the Prospecting and Fossicking community.
It is essential in maintaining NAPFA’s reputation and high standards that risks posed to NAPFA and its members by those nominating for membership (new applicants) are managed.
NAPFA has a policy to ensure that NAPFA manages the risks new applicants may pose to NAPFA and its members by:
(a) Conducting appropriate screening procedures into a nominee’s background to determine what risks, if any, exist; and
(b) Refusing membership to nominees posing an unacceptable risk.
