What is the 5-year legislative review?
The Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor (the Monitor) has completed a 5-year legislative review of the legal provisions in Part 5A (the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS) and the Central Information Point (CIP)) and Part 11 (MARAM) of the Family Violence Protection Act 2008 (Vic). The review considered if the provisions of the Act are being applied as intended, and are effective or otherwise meeting their objectives.
What has been achieved so far?
The Monitor sought the views of organisations, individual practitioners, advocates and others who may be impacted by the provisions through written submissions and consultations to inform the review.
What is planned next?
The review will be tabled in Parliament in August 2023, as required by the Act.
