Child Information Sharing Scheme 5-Year Review

12 Feb 2024

The Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS) is subject to an independent review of its operation within 2 and 5 years of commencement under sections 41ZN and 41ZO of the Child Wellbeing and Safety Act 2005. 

The 2-year review took place in 2020, covering the period from September 2018 to September 2020. For more information, see Child Information Sharing Scheme Reviews.

The 5-year review covers the period from September 2018 to September 2023. It considers two key review questions:

  • to what extent has the operation of CISS achieved its intended reform outcomes to date?
  • do the findings from the review support any considerations for changes to the legislative and/or regulatory settings of the reform?
