Section 36 of the Act requires the
Attorney General to undertake a review of the Act in order to determine whether the policy objectives of the Act remain valid and whether the terms of the Act remain appropriate for securing those objectives. The Department of Justice is conducting the review on behalf of the Attorney.
The Acting Ombudsman recently released a report on a review of the exercise of powers under Parts 2A and 3 of the Act. A copy of that report is available on the
NSW Ombudsman's website.
