|Guide for use:|
An organisation may have multiple names.
Naming standards for incorporated companies are defined in the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), Schedule 6 of the Corporation Regulations.
If special characters or symbols form part of the name they should be included. This includes all characters from the standard printable ASCII character set such as the letters A-Z, hyphens, commas, apostrophes, @, # etc., as well as the non-standard or extended ASCII characters such as ü, á, é, ®, ™etc.
Mixed case should be used rather than upper case only.
