The Guideline provides assistance in the practical application of the legislation covering listening and recording of communications.
The Guideline was revised, taking into account amendments to the Privacy Act 1988, federal and state legislation of the interception of electronic communications and other commonly used forms of electronic communications which should be covered by the Guideline.
Please note that following amendments to the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 in May 2006 at which time section 6 (2) of the Act was deleted, Clauses 10.3.6 to 10.3.11 of this Guideline which deal with Exceptions to the Interception Prohibition and reference that section of the Act are now incorrect. Once further amendments of the TIA Act are enacted, this Guideline will be reviewed.
