The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner is seeking feedback over its draft Privacy Safeguard Guidelines.

The planned rules apply to the Consumer Data Right (CDR) regime, which aims to provide Australians with greater choice and control over how their data will be used and disclosed.

The CDR scheme will be rolled out in February, starting with the banking sector.

“We are looking for business to engage with the draft guidelines, including small business as they will be subject to privacy obligations when they are accredited,” said Angelene Falk, Australian Information Commissioner and Privacy Commissioner.

“This may be a new experience for them, given many small businesses are not subject to the Privacy Act, and we want to provide guidance and practical tips to all CDR participants to help them to comply with the scheme’s privacy safeguards.”

Closing date for submissions is November 20.
