OAIC Summary of Version Changes

In a recent CDR Implementation Call there was a query about an explanation of what changes had been made to the CDR Privacy Safeguard Guidelines. The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner has now published a Summary of Version changes document on their website here. This document sets out in detail the changes made to each Chapter for the most recent update to the CDR Privacy Safeguard Guidelines.


CX Guidelines 

Minor updates to Authorise to disclose, where annotations for checklist items starting with 3AU.02 have been rectified. Annotations for Data Language Standards now cover 3AU.02.14 and 3AU.02.24 to maintain unique checklist numbers. CX checklist and open source assets have also been updated. Future additions and amendments will not change existing CX checklist reference numbers.
