How does the service work and how can it be accessed by members?

Free IR documentation and user pays contracts, policies/procedures and IR documentation:
Members can access ‘ANTA IR Assist’  via the member’s centre on the ANTA website.  To access services provided by ANTA IR Assist, click on the ANTA IR Assist logo and a list of all documents available will appear on the ANTA IR Assist home page.

Free documents can be downloaded at any time.  Reduced Fee documents can be ordered on completion of an online information form which will enable IR Assist consultants to make the documentation member specific.

  • Advocacy and representation in commissions and tribunals
