The Hon Ian Callinan AC QC, former Justice of the High Court of Australia, has invited submissions to a statutory review of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

The statutory review is required under section 4 of the Tribunals Amalgamation Act 2015. This is the legislation that provided for the AAT’s 2015 amalgamation with the Migration Review Tribunal, Refugee Review Tribunal and the Social Security Appeals Tribunal.

The Hon Christian Porter MP, Attorney General, recently announced that Mr Callinan will undertake the scheduled review. Mr Callinan’s report is due to be provided to the Government by the end of October.

The closing date for statutory review submissions is Friday 24 August 2018.

Further information about the scheduled review, including how to make a submission and the terms of reference, is available on the Attorney-General’s website.
