Comments on the Minister’s Guidelines to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation
The Law Council of Australia welcomes the revised version of the Minister’s Guidelines to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO Guidelines). The revised ASIO Guidelines became available publicly when they were tabled in the Senate on 13 August 2020 (on an ‘out-of-sitting’ basis).
The ASIO Guidelines are an important document, as they set the standards and other procedural requirements that ASIO is required to adhere to in the performance of its functions under section 17 of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation Act 1979 (Cth).
