Two 23-year-old men have been charged over a disturbance at the Canberra prison in May.
Emergency services were called to the Alexander Maconochie Centre on May 12, reportedly in response to aggressive behaviour from inmates.
Twenty-eight 28 prisoners became involved in the incident, alleged to have started when a number of detainees failed to comply with directions, over several hours.
The Alexander Maconochie Centre was extensively damaged during the revolt, one of several disturbances to have occurred there over the years.
The two male inmates were identified during the May incident and police said they would face charges of arson, obstructing a territory official, property damage and affray.
One of the men is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday, while the other is scheduled for an appearance at a later date.
