  • New Federal Privacy Laws

    28 September at 22:55 from atlas

    The Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Bill 2012, passed Parliament on 29 November 2012, and is due to come into effect in March 2014. The Australian Privacy Commissioner, Timothy Pilgrim, says the new laws are an important milestone for privacy in Australia. He is confident the reforms will enhance the protection of peoples' personal information.

    The reforms mean that, the same privacy principles will apply to Australian Government agencies and the private sector.

    'A single set of privacy principles, the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), should mean that it will be  easier to comply with privacy  laws, and for individuals to know what laws protect the privacy of their personal information', Mr Pilgrim said.
