The Independent National Security Legislation Monitor released a 316-page report on Australia’s Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2018, dubbed the "anti-encryption" law, according to a blog post from Corrs Chambers Westgarth. The report includes a recommendation that the authorization of compulsory orders is made by an Investigatory Powers Commissioner rather than the attorney general. “This was considered to be a missing factor to ensure proportionality and human rights protection in both perception and practice,” the report states. The INSLM also recommends extending the TOLA Act’s reach to integrity and anti-corruption agencies.
