These proposed amendments align the privacy codes with changes set out in the Intelligence and Security Act 2017.

Credit Reporting Privacy Code Review
Clause 3 of the Code requires the Privacy Commissioner to review the operation of Amendments No 4 and No 5 as soon as practicable after 1 April 2015. The Privacy Commissioner is satisfied the amendments have been in place for long enough that it is now appropriate to initiate a review.
A discussion document is available here.
The Privacy Commissioner invited submissions on the questions in the discussion paper. These submissions are available on this page.
