Wednesday 30 October 2019
The Consumer Data Right (CDR) legislation, passed by Federal Parliament in August, aims to provide greater choice and control for Australians over how their data is used and disclosed. It will allow consumers to access particular data in a usable form and to direct a business to securely transfer those data to an accredited data recipient – making it easier for other providers of the same service to compete for an individual’s business.

Feedback Sought on Integrated Public Number Database (IPND) Code Changes
The Integrated Public Number Database (IPND) is an industry-wide database of all Public Number Customer Data (PNCD). The IPND is a passive database whereby the IPND Manager facilitates the passage of data from Data Providers to Data Users. The IPND Code specifies who can supply and/or receive data to/from the IPND, as well as the obligations on use of IPND data.
This 2019 revision seeks to deliver on three specific recommendations that came out of the 2018 IPND Review by the Australian Communications and Media Authority IPND review, broadly these are:
Following the public comment period, the IPND Code Working Committee will review all comments and revise the draft as appropriate. Subsequently, Communications Alliance will submit the revised Code to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) for consideration for registration. The current IPND Code remains in force until the revised Code is registered by the ACMA.
The public comment period closes on Sunday 10th November 2019.
