A transitionally recognised association (TRA) is a State-registered employer association or union that was granted transitional recognition under Schedule 1 of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009 (RO Act). Transitional recognition permits a TRA to represent its members in the national workplace relations system.
Transitional recognition of associations under Schedule 1 ended on 1 January 2017. Only associations that obtained an extension of time from the Fair Work Commission remain transitionally recognised associations.
A registered organisation is an employer association or union that has been registered under the RO Act.
A TRA has been granted recognition to participate and represent its members in the national industrial system but has not been registered under the RO Act.

In addition to the TRAs listed below, certain state associations can become recognised State-registered associations (RSRAs) under Schedule 2 of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009 (see the List of recognised State-registered associations).
