Simon signs us up with the Privacy Commission


SIMON Corbell has signed a new memorandum of understanding with the Office of the Australian Privacy Commissioner for privacy services in the ACT.

Under the MOU, which will operate from 2014 over three years until 2017, the Australian Privacy Commissioner will act as the ACT Information Privacy Commissioner and will be responsible for investigating and resolving privacy complaints about the handling of personal information by the ACT Government.

In addition to handling complaints and the continuation of a system for regular assessments of the information handling practices of specific agencies, the MOU includes privacy policy and legislative advice to the ACT Government and to MLAs.

Access to these services will allow ACT Government agencies to effectively administer privacy requirements under the new Information Privacy Act 2014.

“The independent oversight and auditing of information handling by ACT Government directorates under this MOU will help protect the privacy of Canberrans,” Simon said.
