OAIC privacy regulatory action policy consultation

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) is currently inviting comments on the clarity of its privacy regulatory action policy.

The OAIC privacy regulatory action policy explains the OAIC’s range of powers and its approach to using its privacy regulatory powers and making related public communications.

The OAIC has developed this guidance to outline and explain their approach to using its privacy regulatory action powers. The guidance covers both existing powers and the new powers conferred on the Information Commissioner under privacy law reform.

The OAIC is currently developing the Guide to the OAIC’s privacy regulatory action, which will address specific regulatory powers and give a more detailed explanation of how the OAIC will exercise these powers.

The consultation is open until Friday 28 March 2014.
