AusCheck Regulations 2017 – Attorney-General’s Department

On 27 July 2017, the Attorney‑General’s Department (the department) remade the AusCheck Regulations 2007 (the regulations) without significant amendments. On 1 August 2017, the AusCheck Regulations 2007 will be repealed and replaced by the AusCheck Regulations 2017.

The regulations outline the administrative processes that AusCheck will use to carry out its functions of conducting and coordinating background checks for individuals who require access to secure areas of airports, seaports and facilities that handle security sensitive biological agents.

Consistent with the Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the department, after consulting stakeholders, has assessed that the regulations are operating effectively and efficiently.
