Scrutiny of COVID-19 instruments

Over the coming months it is likely that there will be prolonged periods without parliamentary sittings following the COVID-19 outbreak. The Senate Standing Committee for the Scrutiny of Delegated Legislation has resolved to meet regularly during this period to ensure that there is appropriate parliamentary oversight of all delegated legislation, particularly executive-made laws which implement COVID-19 response measures.  Further details about the committee's approach to the scrutiny of COVID-19 related delegated legislation are set out in its media statement of 1 April 2020.

Legal framework

On 18 March 2020, the Governor-General declared that a human biosecurity emergency exists regarding COVID-19 for a period of three months until 17 June 2020. On 14 May 2020 the Governor-General extended the human biosecurity emergency period for a further three months until 17 September 2020. During a human biosecurity emergency period, the Minister for Health may, in accordance with sections 477 and 478 of the Biosecurity Act 2015 (Biosecurity Act), determine emergency requirements, or give directions, deemed necessary to prevent or control the entry, emergence, establishment or spread of the relevant disease in Australian territory.  Subsection 477(2) of the Biosecurity Act provides that emergency requirements determined by the Health Minister under subsection 477(1) are not subject to disallowance by the Parliament.

In addition to the instruments made pursuant to the declaration under the Biosecurity Act, the coronavirus response bills passed on 23 March 2020 allow delegated legislation to be made which:

  • exempts classes of persons from the operation of provisions of the Corporations Act and regulations;
  • modifies provisions of the social security law relating to the qualification of persons for social security payments and the rate of social security payments; and
  • prescribes circumstances in which the Commonwealth may pay money from the $1 billion fund for assistance for severely affected regions.
