The High Court in Brandy applied the first limb of the Boilermakers' doctrine to the new scheme, finding that the HREOC's decisions could not be registered in the Federal Court, as this gave the HREOC's powers the element of conclusiveness that made a previously non-judicial power an exercise of judicial power.
This was the third national enquiry into children who had been institutionalised in Australia following examinations of the separation of Indigenous children from their families (Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission (HREOC) (1997) and the experiences of child migrants (Senate Community Affairs References Committee, 2001).
