The new review has asked for submissions on the law that was passed on 6 December and will submit a report by 3 April 2019.
PJCIS chairperson Andrew Hastie said in a statement on Monday: "The committee reached bipartisan agreement in its report on the Assistance and Access Bill. This review will focus on the final act as passed by the Parliament on 6 December 2018, with specific reference to government amendments — including those made to effect the committee’s bipartisan recommendations — made on that date.
"This further inquiry implements recommendation 16 of the committee’s report on the Assistance and Access Bill, for the committee to complete a review of the new laws by 3 April 2019."
Apart from this review, the statement said the panel would again be required to review the new law alongside its review of the data retention regime. That statutory review must be commenced by April 2019 and completed by April 2020.
