The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) recently "commenced a statutory review of the operation of Part 14 of the Telecommunications Act 1997. The review will look at Part 14 of the Act, to the extend that it was amended by the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendments Act 2017 - Telecommunications Sector Security Reforms. The reforms commenced on 18 September 2018 and established a regulatory framework to manage the national security risks of espionage, sabotage and foreign interference to Australia’s telecommunications networks and facilities. Key elements of the reforms are set out on the Department of Home Affairs’ webpage. "

The changes have been the topic of some discussion within the community. Please contact the exec if you would like to participate in this review process.
