Welcome to the Administrative Review Council

The Australian Government has decided to discontinue the Administrative Review Council as a separate advisory body, and consolidate its functions into the Attorney General’s Department. This was announced by the Minister for Finance on 11 May 2015 in the Smaller Government – Transforming the Public Sector media release.

The role of the Administrative Review Council 'is to ensure that our system of administrative review is as effective and significant in its protection of the citizen as it can be'.
