SLI 2012 No. 30 Regulations as made
This regulation amends the Aviation Transport Security Regulations 2005. The Air Security Officer (ASO) Program is transitioning from a Protective Service Officer workforce to a sworn Australian Federal Police (AFP) police officer workforce. For this to occur, the definition of an ASO under regulation 1.03 of the Aviation Transport Security Regulations 2005 needs to be amended. The proposed regulation will expand the definition to also include members and special members of the AFP.
