Legislative Review

One of the roles of the NHRI is to undertake reviews of existing and proposed legislation, or to review other laws, to ensure these laws are consistent with international human rights law. The Ombudsman may recommend additional legislative and other measures to protect human rights. The Ombudsman will work in partnership with government, business and community organisations towards providing improved protection for all, through reforming laws that are discriminatory or otherwise breach human rights.

Please check back regularly for updates on any legislative reviews.
