The Classification Review Board is an independent statutory body responsible for reviewing certain decisions of the Classification Board. It is a part-time board which meets to review decisions of the Classification Board as needed.

Members of the Board are chosen from a range of backgrounds to broadly represent the Australian community. In reviewing classification decisions, Board members are required to apply the relevant law and classification guidelines to make a new classification decision.
