Structure, organisations and key people
The Federal Circuit Court of Australia is a federal court of record established by the Federal Circuit Court of Australia Act 1999. The Court is constituted by judges and exercises federal jurisdiction in family law and child support, bankruptcy, administrative law, consumer law, migration, industrial law, human rights, intellectual property, privacy and admiralty matters. The Court cannot deal with family law or child support matters in Western Australia, where there is a state family court. Staff of the Federal Circuit Court can provide advice on the procedures of the Court, but cannot give legal advice or assist in the conduct of proceedings.
The Legislative and Governance Forum on Consumer Affairs (CAF) consists of all Commonwealth, State, Territory and New Zealand Ministers responsible for fair trading and consumer protection laws. CAF was formerly known as the Ministerial Council on Consumer Affairs (MCCA). CAF’s role is to consider consumer affairs and fair trading matters of national significance and, where possible, develop a consistent approach to those issues. The CAF Charter outlines CAF’s function. Ministers generally meet twice a year, and there are also several official level committees that meet throughout the year to discuss specific aspects of consumer protection. The CAF Charter outlines CAF’s structure.
