Administered by  Government Communications Security Bureau

The Government Communications Security Bureau Act 2003 is an Act of Parliament in New Zealand. It formalised the role of the Government Communications Security Bureau which had existed in secret until 1984.

Controversial changes to the Act (the "GCSB Bill") were announced by Prime Minister John Key in 2013. Since passed into law, Labour has announced that it would review the law and if necessary repeal it. Dame Anne Salmond, the current New Zealander of the Year, condemned the legislation as being in breach of the Bill of Rights.
