The committee system in a parliamentary democracy provides a way of achieving greater public input into issues being considered by Parliament. The Parliament of Victoria has an extensive system of committees which hold inquiries into particular issues and call for input from the wider community, including experts, individuals, business and government organisations, to express their views.

Nine joint committees have been appointed under the Parliamentary Committees and Inquiries Acts Amendment Bill 2015 which passed both houses on Thursday 16 April 2015 and received Royal Assent on Tuesday 21 April 2015.
