Intelligence Services Commissioner

ISC is also used to refer to the Intelligence and Security Committee.

Intelligence Services Commissioner established by the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. ISC works with the Home Office and provides "independent judicial oversight of the conduct of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), Security Service (MI5), Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and a number of other public authorities."

In February 2014 the Home Affairs Committee took the unusual step of serving a summons on the current commissioner, Sir Mark Waller, to give evidence to its Counter-Terrorism inquiry.[1]

The Intelligence Services Commissioner was replaced by the Investigatory Powers Commissioner in September 2017.
