Companies are usually presented to the Commission in the form of email attachments in Word or PDF format. There are no specific requirements for the form of businesses, other than that they must be signed by all employers covered by the agreement. The following commitments were accepted by the Commissioners to accommodate requests for approval of business agreements. See also  FWC 2140 at  regarding the need for a business when an agreement contains a notion of the primacy of the NES. The Commission may approve an enterprise agreement that may not meet certain requirements of the Fair Work Act 2009 if it is satisfied that a written undertaking meets the request. If the Commission is concerned that an enterprise agreement will not meet the licensing requirements set out in the Ss.186 and 187 of the Fair Work Act (including the adoption of the BOOT), the Commission may approve the agreement if it accepts a written commitment from the employer (s) that is covered by the agreement corresponding to that request.  The obligation is for the employer to comply with the written provisions in the company in addition to or in lieu of the duration of the agreement. The company is part of the agreement and is legally binding on the employer.  Note: Each agreement is considered independently and the terms of an agreement are assessed globally. The following commitments may not be enough to allay a member`s concerns about other agreements.
When the Commission approves the agreement, each accepted commitment (s) is mentioned in the decision and is attached to the copy of the agreement published on the Commission`s website. This agreement is read and interpreted in conjunction with National Employment Standards (NES). If there is a contradiction between this agreement and the NES and the NES is more useful, the NES provision will apply to the extent that it is inconsistent. The above practices also apply to companies that amend agreements (with the exception of the amendment to the agreement is approved in accordance with the s.212 and the commitment is used to remedy a non-compliance with the requirements of s.211).
