Privacy Act reforms

In June 2010, the Government released exposure draft legislation setting out proposed Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) to replace both the private sector National Privacy Principles (NPPs) and the public sector Information Privacy Principles (IPPs). Throughout July 2010, PLCA presented at seminars providing an overview of the proposed changes. The seminar materials provide detailed analyses regarding the scope and impact of new obligations under the APPs. The materials are available from the seminar organisers – private sector materials  |  public sector materials
