                     (a)  the practice and procedure to be followed by the FWC; or

                     (b)  the conduct of business in relation to matters allowed or required to be dealt with by the FWC.

             (2)  Without limiting subsection (1), the procedural rules may provide for the following:

                     (a)  the requirements for making an application to the FWC;

                     (b)  the circumstances in which a lawyer or paid agent may make an application or submission to the FWC on behalf of a person who is entitled to make the application or submission;

                     (c)  the form and manner in which, and the time within which, submissions may or must be made to the FWC;

                     (d)  the procedural requirements for making decisions of the FWC;

                     (e)  the form and manner in which the FWC gives directions and notifies persons of things;

                    (ea)  the requirements for making a notification to the FWC;

                      (f)  who is notified by the FWC of things;

                     (g)  the manner in which conferences are to be conducted in relation to applications made under Part 3-1, 3-2 or Part 6-4 (which deal with general protections, unfair dismissal and unlawful termination).

             (3)  To avoid doubt, subsection (1) includes the power to make procedural rules in relation to any functions conferred on the FWC by any other law of the Commonwealth.
