In September 2015, the EAG delivered its final report (PDF 597.38KB), reflecting the findings and feedback from five major pieces of quantitative, qualitative and organisational research. The College accepted the EAG recommendations in full and issued an apology.

The primary focus of the EAG was to understand the extent of the problem in the practice of surgery in Australia and New Zealand and recommend actions the College could take directly and in partnership with others to prevent it.
