Expansion of the Technical Advisory Board Membership

, , Leave a comment

Would you like to join a group of industry and government experts in analysing complex and technical issues to produce balanced and independent advice for the Home Secretary?

The Technical Advisory Board (TAB) is a non-departmental public body which was established under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA) and whose remit was expanded under the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 (IPA). The TAB has two main duties; to consider the technical requirements and the financial consequences of a notice that is to be imposed upon a telecommunications operator (TO) and to provide advice to the Secretary of State if the TO seeks a review of the notice.

The roles offer exciting opportunities to contribute to the strategic direction of the TAB and to ensure that it can continue to function as an important safeguard for industry and government and contribute to consideration of the way in which these issues bear upon the government’s future negotiations with the industry.

Further information is available on the Cabinet Office website.
