Consumer Data Right rules—expansion to the telecommunications sector and other operational enhancements
Thank you for the opportunity to provide comments about the Consumer Data Right (CDR) rules—expansion to the telecommunications sector and other operational enhancements. The Law Council of Australia’s Business Law Section, based on the contribution of its Privacy Law Committee (the Committee), is pleased to provide the following comments and observations.
Members of the Committee note that organisations generally welcome the more descriptive and comprehensive standards of compliance provided for under the legally binding consumer privacy rights and obligations in the 13 CDR Privacy Safeguards. There is no in-principle objection to the proposed extension of the CDR regime provided there is no diminution in the standards of compliance required.
