For these Regulations, a number of common law holders constitute a group of common law holders if they belong to a tribe, clan or family, or a descent, language or other group, recognized as such in accordance with Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander traditional laws and customs applying to them. An Aboriginal association is prescribed for section 59 of the Native Title Act 1993 if it is incorporated under the Aboriginal Councils and Associations Act 1976 for the purpose of being the subject of a section 56 or 57 determination. An Aboriginal association is taken to be incorporated for the purpose of being the subject of a section 56 or 57 determination only if criteria set out in regulation 5 are met. A prescribed body corporate may be a trustee for, or act as an agent or representative of, more than 1 group of common law holders in relation to a native title determination if the determination applies to each group. Functions of prescribed body corporate acting as trustee are set out in regulation 6.
