DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 9th of July 2021

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.

News and Announcements

Latest Standards, Consumer Experience, tooling and Consumer Data Right announcements.


Action Initiation Workshop

On Tuesday 27th July, the Data Standards Body (DSB) and the Treasury will be running a half-day virtual workshop on action-initiation to inform the Government's response to the Future Directions for the Consumer Data Right recommendations.

The workshop will give the community an opportunity to collaborate on the general framework for action-initiation as outlined in the Future Directions report. The workshop will include an overview from the DSB and Treasury to illustrate principles, current thinking, and potential use cases and supporting actions. Workshop participants will be required to engage in hands-on activities with other participants to develop and refine action-initiation value propositions, journey maps, and to help prioritise high value use cases and their requisite actions.

A Noting Paper has been published on the DSB's consultation page to provide the community with an opportunity to review and comment on the topic ahead of the workshop. A briefing will also be provided on a future CDR implementation call.

Normative Standards Review (2021)

The purpose of this review process is to review and uplift the CDS where changes in upstream standards are identified. The CDS relies upon a number of external standards, and over time these standards can be revised and newer versions issued. To remain current, this review process seeks to consider the impact of any changes and the approach to align the CDS as required.
