Privacy assessments

RSS feed

The Australian Information Commissioner has powers to conduct privacy assessments of agencies and organisations covered by the Privacy Act 1988.

The Commissioner may also conduct assessments of ACT public sector agencies in exercising some of the functions of the ACT Information Privacy Commissioner in the Information Privacy Act 2014 (ACT), under an arrangement between the Australian and ACT governments.

The OAIC publishes finalised reports of these assessments (previously called audits) to help promote good privacy practice. If a report contains classified content, we may not be able to publish it.

Assessment and audit reports finalised since 2013 are listed on this page. Visit Trove for assessments between 2011 to 2013 and audits conducted by the former Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
