Claims Negotiating Framework - NTA Agreement
|Sub Category:||Template Agreement|
|Subject Matter:||Native Title | Recognition of Native Title or Traditional Ownership | Recognition of Traditional Rights and Interests|
|The Claims Negotiating Framework - NTA is a template Negotiating Framework Agreement provided by the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT). |
It is envisaged by the NNTT that these agreements will be used to assist Indigenous Australians and non-Indigenous Australians to negotiate Negotiating Framework Agreements that can be tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.
The Claims Negotiating Framework - NTA is designed to be made between native title claimants and a State or Territory, and aims to provide a basis, process and timetable for negotiating a native title claim without the need for a Federal Court proceeding.
The template agreement covers matters including:
(a) negotiations will be based on the premise that a determination of native title is possible;
(b) any agreement as to native title would be subject to the laws of the State or Territory and the Commonwealth, and to any other private rights and interests;
(c) the statements that each party would provide to the other before negotiations commenced, including that the native title party would have to a statement detailing the extent of the native title that was being claimed; and
(d) dispute resolution procedures.
|The NNTT has issued template agreements covering six categories, being:|
1. Future Act Agreements
2. Intra-Aboriginal Agreements
3. Mediation Withdrawal Agreements
4. Negotiating Framework Agreements
5. Pastoral Agreements
6. Reconciliation Agreements Principals.
