The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) has released the National Outcome Standards for Perpetrator Interventions (NOSPI), which was developed by Commonwealth, state and territory governments. The Standards are: 1. Women and their children’s safety is the core priority of all perpetrator interventions; 2. Perpetrators get the right interventions at the right time; 3. Perpetrators face justice and legal consequences when they commit violence; 4. Perpetrators participate in programmes and services that change their violent behaviours and attitudes; 5. Perpetrator interventions are driven by credible evidence to continuously improve; 6. People working in perpetrator intervention systems are skilled in responding to the dynamics and impacts  of domestic, family and sexual violence.
