About the INSLM
The Independent National Security Legislation Monitor (INSLM) is independent of Government. The role of the INSLM is to review the operation, effectiveness and implications of Australia’s counter terrorism and national security legislation on an ongoing basis.
Under the Independent National Security Legislation Monitor Act 2010 (Cth) the INSLM must consider and report to the Prime Minister on the following areas of counter-terrorism and national security legislation, by 7 September 2017:
- Division 3A of Part IAA of the Crimes Act (Stop, Search & Seize powers);
- Offences relating to entering and remaining in ‘declared areas’ under div 119.
- Divisions 104 and 105 of the Criminal Code (Control Orders & Preventive Detention Orders), including the interoperability of the control order regime and the High Risk Terrorist Offenders Act 2016.
