DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 6th of November

Dear Consumer Data Right participants and other interested parties,

Happy Friday all, here is the end of the week update for the Consumer Data Standards.

CX Research | Round 8 | Disclosure Consents

The v2 rules propose the introduction of 'Disclosure Consents' to allow consumers to consent to disclose their CDR data and/or insights derived from CDR data from an Accredited Data Recipient (ADR) to another ADR; to Trusted Advisors (TA, e.g. lawyers, accountants, mortgage brokers etc.); and to non-Accredited Persons (Non-AP, who can only receive CDR insights).

These processes are expected to differ to original consents established between ADRs and Data Holders (DH). The proposed v2 rules and consultation paper state that ADRs must comply with any CX Standards and must have regard to CX Guidelines, and suggest that 'standards or guidelines may incorporate, for example, warnings that the non-accredited person may not be subject to the Privacy Act 1988'.

CX research will be conducted to explore how the above scenarios can operate in a way that is intuitive, informed, and trustworthy, which will in turn inform the development of any CX Standards or CX Guidelines.

The next round of research will focus on ADR to ADR disclosure consents, and insight disclosure consents to non-APs. TA Disclosures will be touched on but not investigated in detail. A research brief outlining the background, approach, objectives, and hypotheses has been made available online.

End of Year Break

GitHub: Request for Clarification

For those who have been using the 'Request for Clarification' on our GitHub Maintenance Repository, we have now retired this support on GitHub. These requests are now moved to the CDR Support Portal. We will be updating the templates on GitHub to remove the current 'Request for Clarification' and provide pointers to visit our CDR Support Portal.
