ACA Player Agent Accreditation Scheme
Player agents are very important stakeholders in the game today, and the services they provide to players are growing in number, complexity and importance each year. It is imperative that agents have the necessary knowledge, integrity, competence, conduct, performance and professionalism to act in the best interests of our players.
Recognising this importance, under their most recent Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Cricket Australia (CA) and the ACA have agreed to introduce a compulsory scheme for the accreditation and regulation of player agents representing professional cricketers in Australia.
As a result, the ACA has launched the ACA Player Agent Accreditation Scheme (Scheme), which is administered by the ACA (with CA support) and overseen by an Agent Accreditation Board (comprising of CA and ACA employees and outside parties).
Under the MOU, the ACA and CA have agreed that, as from 1 April 2013 (with only limited exceptions), CA, State Associations, BBL Teams and the ACA will only deal with Accredited Agents in player contract discussions.
The ACA recently launched the Scheme and is currently accepting applications for Accreditation.
Once applicants for accreditation become Accredited Agents, their names and business contact details will be posted on this website.
Further information on the Scheme is provided in the following documents:
