Providing feedback on NDB resources

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) has released four draft resources to help agencies and organisations prepare for the NDB scheme’s commencement on 22 February 2018. The OAIC will be releasing further draft resources for public comment in the coming months.

Stimulus questions

The OAIC has prepared the following questions which are intended to stimulate comments and reflections on the draft resources. They are not intended to confine the issues that may be raised. You may wish to respond to some or even all questions, or to raise other issues related to resources.

  • Are the draft resources clear, relevant and practical?
  • Do the draft resources meet the needs of agencies and organisations in understanding the new requirements under the NDB scheme?
  • Are there any topics that you believe the draft resources should cover that have not been covered, or should be covered in greater detail?
  • Are there any practical examples you could share to help illustrate the operation of the NDB scheme?
  • Are there any other ways in which the draft resources could be enhanced?
