Quality and consistency through collaboration

Privacy Act Reform Hub

Since 2020, the Attorney General’s Department has been undertaking a comprehensive review of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). The catalyst for this was the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s 2019 Digital Platforms Inquiry, which made several privacy recommendations.

Sparke Helmore’s privacy specialists are watching developments closely and share below a collection of the key things that our clients need to know.
