Since the V1.2.0 release on 31 January 2020 of the Consumer Data Standards (CDS), the Data Standards Body (DSB) has continued to liaise with the broader ecosystem participants to develop and refine the standards in support of the Australian Government’s Consumer Data Right regime. The standards are intended to make it easier and safer for consumers to share access to the data collected about them by businesses, and – with their explicit approval – to share this data via application programming interfaces (APIs) with trusted, accredited third parties.
The DSB is pleased to announce the 17 April 2020 release which represents the high-level standards. The version 1.3.0 release is in accordance with the rules and phasing timetable made by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
We know that many in the community have been monitoring the open discussions relating to the CDS and have actively contributed to making these what they are, with feedback in workshops, on GitHub, via email and in bilateral discussions. We thank the CDR community for their active participation which has helped develop these binding standards and encourage everyone to continue to help evolve these as living standards to serve the future CDR regime.
In this version V1.3.0 release of the standards we are publishing the latest versions of the:
- The Consumer Data Standards containing the API standards, CX standards and Information Security profile; and
- The Consumer Experience Guidelines containing guidelines and examples for putting key standards and rules into effect.
Please note that we continue to encourage interested participants to provide on-going feedback on the Consumer Data Standards through GitHub. All such feedback will be included in the backlog list for consideration in future versions of the standards.
The community is also invited to provide feedback on the CX Standards, Guidelines, and related decision proposals on the relevant CX consultation page and on GitHub.
