In order to solve the long-standing problem of unfair and subjective election methods as well as inadequate professional competence of Reserved Land Rights Review Committee for Indigenous Peoples reflected by public opinion representatives and tribal people at all levels, which result in many complaints and administrative relief, the Council of Indigenous Peoples began to study the key points of Committee set-up in 2016. After consulting and explaining the opinions of the local government, the key points of Committee set-up were amended and promulgated in accordance with the legal procedure on December 22, 2018.

Most of the applications related to reserved lands for indigenous people were handled by special municipalities, County (city) governments or township (town, city, and district) offices through the land review mechanism. However, over the years, people of different ethnic groups often propose appeals to prosecute their applications, questioning the operational mechanism of the Reserved Land Rights Review Committee for Indigenous Peoples. Therefore, the main points of this amendment are as follows: 1. Amended the appointment method of members of Reserved Land Rights Review Committee for Indigenous Peoples, and the offices shall notify the aboriginal villages or tribes within its jurisdiction to recommend impartial persons or people enthusiastic about public welfare and familiar with the decrees within two months in accordance with the custom, and the offices shall select and employ such. 2. Add the regulations that the special municipalities and the county (city) governments shall supervise the completion of the study and certification conducted by counselors. 3. Defined the nature of the resolution made by Reserved Land Rights Review Committee for Indigenous Peoples and clearly divide the rights and obligations of the members.

Icyang, chairman of the Council, said that, through the amendment of the regulations, the opinions of tribal members could be fully received, so that members could lead to stronger tribal representativeness, impartiality and objectivity of the review as well as the relevant knowledge enhancement of the members' decrees in order to meet the expectations of tribes and to protect the land rights and interests of the tribes.
