The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (also known by the acronym SIAC) is a superior court of record in the United Kingdom that deals with appeals from persons deported by the Secretary of State for the Home Department under various statutory powers. Until it was repealed by the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, SIAC also had the power to certify a person as an international terrorist under Part 4 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001; as well as appeals from persons deprived of British citizenship under the British Nationality Act 1981 as amended by Section 4 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002.
SIAC was established by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission Act 1997.
