Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Act 2018 (Cth)

The submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security’s inquiry into the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Act 2018 (Cth) with specific reference to Government amendments introduced and passed on 6 December 2018 was prepared by the Law Council of Australia. 

The Law Council acknowledges that the Government amendments have made some the improvements to the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Bill 2018 (Cth). Notably, they have improved recordkeeping, inspection and reporting requirements, and have introduced important accountability and oversight measures.

However, the Law Council considers that there are a number of areas which the Government amendments have not addressed, or which have been addressed in an insufficient manner. The key outstanding issues, in the view of the Law Council, are detailed in the submission.
