Tribunal reviews-security assessments

Over the 2019–20 reporting period, ASIO managed 13 adverse security assessment reviews before the AAT, including those relating to cancelled or refused passports, visas and security clearances.

Of these:

  • three decisions were handed down, affirming the adverse security assessment which was the subject of the review.
  • three assessments were remitted to ASIO for new assessments to be prepared, which resulted in the issuing of three non-prejudicial assessments in this reporting period;
  • one matter was heard, with the decision remaining reserved at the end of this reporting period; and
  • six matters were pending at the end of this reporting period.
