The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) is a superior court of record which was created by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission Act 1997 and deals with appeals in cases where the Secretary of State for the Home Department exercises statutory powers to deport or to exclude someone from the UK on national security grounds or for other public interest reasons; or to certify a person to be an international terrorist and detain them under Part 4 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001.
SIAC also hears appeals against decisions to deprive persons of citizenship status, under the British Nationality Act 1981 as amended. Section 4 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 introduced changes to the British Nationality Act 1981 (BNA 1981) relating to the deprivation of British nationality or status.
