DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 14th of April 2022

Dear Consumer Data Right participants and other interested parties,

Happy Thursday all, here is the end of the (short) week update for the Consumer Data Standards.

The Data Standards Body hope everyone is able to take a break to relax and recharge. Stay safe and well!

News and Announcements

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


Caretaker Role

The Government is now in a caretaker role as the election has been called. Information on the https://consumerdatastandards.gov.au/ website will be published in accordance with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Guidance on Caretaker Conventions. No election-related material will be available on this website. Please see the relevant minister's or party’s website for more information on election-related material.

"During the caretaker period, the business of government continues and ordinary matters of administration still need to be addressed.", from Section 2.4 of the Caretaker Convention Guidelines.

The making and amending of the non-legislative Data Standard instruments are considered an ordinary matter of administration.


Extension of Decision Proposals

All open Decision Proposals with Feedback Closure dates have been extended to the 27th of May 2022.

CDR Implementation Call for the 21st of April 2022

The Consumer Data Right Implementation Call planned on the 21st of April 2022 will be cancelled to allow the Community, the DSB, and the ACCC members on the Call to take a break.

We encourage the Community to take time to recharge and relax with family and friends. The CDR Implementation Call will recommence on the next Thursday 28th of April 2022. We will update the invitations and send out cancellations for this instance.
