At hearings in the form of workshops the Royal Commission will hear from a panel of witnesses identified as having relevant evidence and expertise to share. Workshops will provide a space for discussions between witnesses, Counsel Assisting and the Commissioners as they test propositions and ideas in preparation for the final report. People who are expected to appear as witnesses will be contacted by the Royal Commission in advance of the relevant workshop.

The Royal Commission will publish details of workshops on this page to assist witnesses, participants, the public and media. Visit this page for more information for witnesses.

From March 2020, the Royal Commission has taken the precautionary step of suspending all hearings and workshops for the time being, subject to ongoing review. This decision is a consequence of the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and based on information available from the Australian Government. For more information read the full media release.​
