The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) maintains a number of privacy registers, which can be found on this page.
Public interest determinations register
The Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) allows the Privacy Commissioner to make Public interest determinations (PID). More information about PIDs, how the Privacy Commissioner makes these determinations and a list of PIDs on the Public interest determinations register page.
Privacy codes register
Under the Privacy Act, the Australian Information Commissioner can approve and register enforceable codes which are developed by entities on their own initiative, developed on request from the Information Commissioner, or developed by the Information Commissioner directly.
An Australian Privacy Principle (APP) code developed by an entity sets out how one or more of the APPs are to be applied or complied with, and the APP entities that are bound by the code.
The Privacy Act also requires the development of a code of practice about credit reporting. The credit reporting privacy code sets out how the Privacy Act’s credit reporting provisions are to be applied or complied with by credit reporting bodies, credit providers and other entities bound by Part IIIA of the Privacy Act.
More information about privacy codes and a list of current privacy codes can be found on the Privacy codes register page.
Privacy opt-in register
The Privacy Act allows small business operators, who would otherwise not be covered by the Privacy Act, to choose to be treated as an organisation for the purposes of the Act and therefore subject to the Australian Privacy Principles. For more information about how to opt-in, the opt-in form and how to opt-out see the Privacy opt-in register page.
