FIORC was created in the spirit of the existing Five Eyes partnership, the intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. FIORC is composed of the following non-political intelligence oversight, review, and security entities of the Five Eyes countries:

 

  • The Office of the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security of Australia
  • The National Security and Intelligence Review Agency of Canada
  • The Office of the Intelligence Commisioner of Canada
  • The Commissioner of Intelligence Warrants and the Office of the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security of New Zealand
  • The Investigatory Powers Commissioner's Office of the United Kingdom
  • The Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community of the United States

 

The Council members exchange views on subjects of mutual interest and concern; compare best practices in review and oversight methodology; explore areas where cooperation on reviews and the sharing of results is permitted where appropriate; encourage transparency to the largest extent possible to enhance public trust; and maintain contact with political offices, oversight and review committees, and non-Five Eyes countries as appropriate.
