DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 18th of December

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 Guidelines

The CX Working group has now released the first iteration of the new CX Guidelines. This version contains all existing CX Standards plus revised guidelines and wireframes for the authentication flow.

CX artefacts will continue to be updated until all existing CX artefacts have been ported over from the previous PDF format. These revisions will occur in conjunction with any proposed CDR Rules changes being made.
The web-based CX artefacts can be found on our new CX Standards and Guidelines repository, which includes:

  1. A CX Checklist with a complete database of items referenced in the CX Guidelines, including relevant rules, data standards (CX and technical), and privacy safeguards; also available as a downloadable file.
  2. A CX Metrics page, which covers how the CX Working Group measures consent quality, comprehension, characteristics, and other research-related information.
  3. A new CX Guideline format, featuring embedded wireframes, prototypes, and open source assets (see example: Authentication)

CPRC Report

The second report from the Consumer Policy Research Centre (CPRC) covers views and experiences of consumer advocates and the community sector to identify where the standards and guidelines might be augmented to facilitate joint account data sharing that is safe and inclusive for all consumers. This engagement will inform future iterations of the standards and guidelines. The report can be accessed here.
