The ARC has commenced the implementation of the 2020 ANZSRC codes for NCGP activities, as advised in the September 2020 ARChway edition. Stage one has been completed, allowing RMS users to convert the existing 2008 FoR codes to the new 2020 FoR codes, as well as manually enter the new 2020 FoR codes.

The ARC will now introduce the 2020 FoR codes into NCGP grant application forms and assessments for schemes due to open - please note that the next scheme round is scheduled to open for applications on 4 August 2021.

We urge all RMS users to update their FoR codes now.

Please ensure that your 2008 FoR codes remain in the profile as the ARC is continuing to utilise the 2008 FoR codes for current applications and assessments.

Further information relating to full instructions on how to update your FoR codes is available within the RMS User Management Guide on the ARC website.

If you have questions regarding the updated 2020 FoR codes, please email
