Committees

Pandemic Declaration Accountability and Oversight Committee

The Committee reviews pandemic orders and other instruments made by the Minister for Health [https://www.health.vic.gov.au/covid-19/pandemic-order-register]. This includes any declared pandemics that may occur in the future.

The Committee may recommend that a pandemic order (or parts of an order) be disallowed or suspended. It also reviews the orders to ensure they are compatible with the human rights set out in the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006.
