Scrutiny of Delegated Legislation

The Senate Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances (the committee) was established in 1932. The committee's name was changed on 4 December 2019 to the Senate Standing Committee for the Scrutiny of Delegated Legislation, to more accurately reflect the nature and scope of the committee's work. Its functions, which are set out in Senate standing order 23, are to assess delegated legislation against a set of scrutiny principles that focus on compliance with statutory requirements, the protection of individual rights and liberties, and principles of parliamentary oversight.
