About the CTIVD

The Review Committee on the Intelligence and Security Services (CTIVD) was founded in 2002. Since 1 May 2018, when the Intelligence and Security Services Act 2017 (ISS Act 2017) came into force, the CTIVD consists of two departments: the Oversight Department and the Complaints Handling Department.

The Oversight Department reviews the lawfulness of the tasks performed by the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) and the Military Intelligence and Security Service (MIVD).

The Complaints Handling Department handles complaints about the conduct of the AIVD and the MIVD and reports of alleged misconduct by the AIVD and the MIVD.
