Legislates the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018

On 11 April 2018, the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018 received assent. The Act creates a framework for managing critical infrastructure by establishing a non-public register of critical infrastructure assets, and by collecting and updating – via reporting obligations for interest holders – information on the operation, ownership and control of the assets in the register. The rules are asset-specific and ownership-neutral and hence apply to domestic and foreign owners alike. The Act also gives the Minister for Home Affairs a power of “last resort” to direct the operator of a listed asset in the registry to do or not do a specific measure to manage an identified national security risk in certain circumstances.

Type: Entry and establishment (Approval and admission), Treatment and operation (Other)

Industry: Not industry specific
