New privacy laws

Major changes to privacy laws started on 12 March, 2014.

By now, your organisation or agency should have:

  • a copy of our document: “Privacy Act Changes — complying with the new laws”;
  • a new or updated privacy policy that complies with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs);
  • collection notices that cover all the areas required under the APPs; and
  • a compliance program to ensure you meet your obligations under the Privacy Act.

Many organisations are letting their customers, clients and suppliers know about their new privacy arrangements.

If your organisation or agency needs advice on the new laws, we offer a complete fixed-price solution. Our solutions include compliance checklists, supporting documents and training packages. Alternatively, we can review your existing privacy arrangements. We have advised a wide range of private and public sector clients on the new privacy laws. Please contact us for further details.
