This covers, but does not limit to fraud, mismanagement, accident investigation, occupational health and safety issues, family matters, child protection, missing persons, and personal backgrounds.

Control over Activities of Surveillance Investigators However, these ‘private eyes’ must comply with national, state, and territory legislation. For example, they are subject to Privacy Act 1988, and must respect Australian Privacy Principles under National Privacy Principles and Privacy Protection Act 2012.

This includes minimum age, major-offence-free record, and no history of bankruptcy. • Applying discretion over minor offences, public interest considerations, or failure to meet training and qualification standards. • Imposing sanctions for licensing infringements, employing unlicensed surveillance investigators, or disposing of licenses through sale, loan or gift.
