The Centre has responsibility for the Australian modification of the WHO’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and the Australian Classification of Health Interventions, and the Australian casemix grouper, the AR-DRG classification.

In addition, Richard works on a variety of Indigenous statistics issues, and is the inaugural Director of the Sydney Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Statistics. Since 2015 Richard is a member of the Advisory Group for Aboriginal Affairs Research – Aboriginal Affairs NSW

Richard is also co-stream leader for the National Disability Insurance Scheme in the University’s Centre for Disability Research and Policy.

Richard is Chair of the House with No Steps, a major non-government provider of disability services in Australia, and is a Board member of the Royal Rehabilitation Centre Sydney. In 2015 Richard was appointed Chair of the NDS Committee on Applied Disability Research.

Richard chaired/co-chaired the WHO Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC) Family Development Committee from 2000 to 2012. The Committee is responsible for expanding the Family and seeking alignment across classifications. He chaired the WHO-FIC Network from 2003 to 2005. He has led the WHO effort since 2007 to develop an International Classification of Health Interventions, with a finalised alpha version released in October 2015.
