DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 22nd of October 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.

This week's edition is enourmous! So we've added a Table of Contents: 


Version 1.13.0

Version 1.13.0 is now published for the Consumer Data Standards. The latest version includes:

  • Structure: Restructured the overall standards structure to accommodate energy and register standards. These changes were aesthetic only and not intended to result in material change to the standards
  • Register Standards: Incorporated CDR Register standards according to Decision 206
  • CDR Federation: Updated definitions to be consistent with the definitions of Data Recipient and Data Recipient Software Product as described and permitted by the CDR Register design.
  • Endpoint Versioning Schedule: Removed "experimental" note. Endpoint versioning has proved useful to the community and will continue to be maintained. Enhancements to the versioning schedule can be raised as change requests via the Standards Maintenance process.
  • Secondary Responsibility: Addition of the secondary responsibility section incorporating the AEMO security profile and AEMO endpoint decisions

Get Metrics Version 1.0 end date approaching

A reminder to any Data Holder that has not completed their migration from Version 1 to Version 2 of the Get Metrics endpoint that the 31st October 2021 is the future dated obligation for the Register to stop calling v1. This deadline is fast approaching. From the 1st November 2021, Version 1 will be considered the deprecated version and not compliant with the Standards. The ACCC has indicated that they will continue to call Version 1 if Version 2 is not supported by a Data Holder, but will be tracking usage to determine when it is appropriate to decommission the Version 1 call.

Refer to the key areas in the standards below that provide the information needed to support future Get Metrics standards obligations.

Get Metrics V1 – Get Metrics v1 (consumerdatastandardsaustralia.github.io)

Future Dated Obligations – Consumer Data Standards (consumerdatastandardsaustralia.github.io)
