Last year, a new Part 11 was added to the Strata Schemes Management Regulation 2016 as part of the COVID-19 response in NSW. These reforms were due to be repealed on the 31 May 2022 but will now continue to have effect until 30 September 2022 under the Strata Schemes Management Amendment (COVID-19) Regulation 2022.

The initiatives allow for altered arrangements for voting at strata meetings, including voting via audio visual link. A person who has voted or intends to vote via a means other that an in-person vote is taken to be present for the purposes of determining whether there is a quorum for the motion or election. However, it does not permit pre-meeting electronic voting to be used in elections.

Additionally, instead of affixing the seal of an owners corporation to a document, each person required to be present may sign the document and witness the signature of each other person required to be present.
