The Honourable Richard Tracey AM RFD QC has been appointed effective immediately.

He will replace former Commissioner The Honourable Justice Joseph McGrath who stepped down for family reasons.

Mr Tracey served as a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia for 12 years and has been President of the Defence Force Discipline Appeal Tribunal and Judge Advocate General for the Australian Defence Force.

Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt says Mr Tracey’s appointment will have no impact on the timeframe for the conduct of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, with the Royal Commission to submit an interim report to the Governor-General by 31 October 2019 and a final report by 30 April 2020.

Royal Commission hearings will be based in Adelaide, but take place all over the country.
