Superannuation Trustee Obligations and Prudential Standards Bill passed

The Superannuation Legislation Amendment (Trustee Obligations and Prudential Standards) Bill 2012 has now been passed by both Houses of Parliament and is awaiting Royal Assent.

UPDATE 11 September 2012: Assent

Background
Draft prudential standards

The prudential standards provisions will apply from the day after Royal Assent. The enhancements to trustee obligations will apply from 1 July 2013.
