The Statistical Clearing House (SCH) is the mandatory central clearance point for business surveys that are run, funded, or conducted on behalf of the Commonwealth Government. We work to reduce the load of Commonwealth Government surveys on Australian businesses, and ensure surveys are fit for their purpose.
All Commonwealth Government surveys approaching 50 or more businesses require SCH review and approval before they can begin collecting data. Read more about us.
If your business has been approached to participate in a Commonwealth Government survey, you may contact us to check whether the survey has been approved to collect your business' information.
SCH availability during the Christmas period
The SCH will be unattended from Monday 21st December to Wednesday 8th of January (inclusive). If your survey will require approval/review during this period please contact us via the details below as soon as possible.
We wish you and your family a happy holiday season and new year.
