Key points

  • Privacy Safeguard 13, together with the consumer data rules (CDR Rules) and the Competition and Consumer Regulations,  sets out obligations for data holders and accredited data recipients of CDR data in relation to correction requests made by consumers in respect of their CDR data.
  • Privacy Safeguard 13 does not apply to the Australian Energy Market Operator Limited (AEMO) in its capacity as a data holder. Accordingly, unless otherwise indicated, all references in this Chapter to data holders exclude AEMO.
