Overview

The Department of Home Affairs is seeking to obtain views on the proposed amendments, by Order, to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 2001.

The purpose of the Order is to minimise the disparity between the timelines for ‘spent’ convictions found in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 2001 and those in the United Kingdom’s Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (an Act of Parliament).
