Summary

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal was established under the Commonwealth Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act (1975) and commenced operations on 1 July 1976. The Tribunal was set up to provide an independent review mechanism for administrative decisions made by Australian Government ministers, departments, agencies, and some other tribunals. In limited circumstances, the Tribunal also had powers to review administrative decisions made by state government and non-government bodies. The Tribunal also had some powers to review decisions made by the Norfolk Island Government.

On 13 May 2014 the Government announced that the Administrative Appeals Tribunal would be amalgamated with the Migration Review Tribunal, Refugee Review Tribunal, Social Security Appeals Tribunal and Classification Review Board with effect from 1 July 2015.
