Pursuant to section 7 of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement Act 2010, the committee will inquire into and report on the operation of the Australian Crime Commission Amendment (Special Operations and Special Investigations) Act 2019 (SOSI Act), with particular reference to whether the SOSI Act has:
- appropriately streamlined the process by which the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) Board determines to authorise the ACIC to undertake a special operation or special investigation;
- ensured the validity of, at that time, current, former and future special operation and special investigation determinations of the ACIC;
- effectively achieved its aim of enabling the ACIC to continue to fulfil its statutory obligations without interruption; and,
- any other relevant matter.
