DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 1st of April 2022

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.


Consumer Data Standards 1.16.2

Version 1.16.2 of the Consumer Data Standards is being planned for today, 1st of April 2022. The latest version proposes:

  • High Level Standards
    • Removal of an 'exhaust port vulnerability' errata
  • API End Points
    • Error code 420 for GET Products and GET Product Detail: "The CDR finds your lack of CORS support disturbing" where CORS implementation is erroneous
  • Consumer Experience
    • Updated Consumer Experience text description for handling of Error code 404: "This is not the endpoint you are looking for." 

(In the interest of minimising potential misunderstandings we feel compelled to note that the previous section, and only this section, was an April Fool's Day joke).


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 both Community, the DSB, and 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.


CX artefacts - Trusted adviser disclosure consents

Trusted Adviser (TA) disclosure consent artefacts provide implementation examples to reflect the new rules on TA disclosure consents and the CX standards introduced in v1.16.0, related to Disclosure Consent: Non-Accredited Person Disclosure Notification.

  • Updated CX Checklist (on website) includes key requirements and guidelines related to TA disclosure consents, see checklist references starting with 1CO3.


Additional 10th Maintenance Iteration meet: 6th of April 2022

An additional meeting in the series for Maintenance Iteration 10 has been scheduled for next week, Wednesday the 6th of April at 2:00PM AEST, to discuss items that we didn't get to in the last meeting (#4 30/03/2022). The issues to be discussed, in the following order, include:



An agenda will be published before the meeting. 

Please note: No Energy specific issues will be discussed in this call however Register and Infosec issues will apply to Energy participants.

The remaining issues are complex, therefore we anticipate 2 hours will be required. An invitation has been sent to Maintenance Iteration Working Group Invitees. If you'd like an invite please email contact@consumerdatastandards.gov.au.


Decision Proposal 245 published

This week the Data Standards Body published Decision Proposal 245 Enhancing Data Recipient Accreditation Negotiation.

This proposal raises the following questions to help consider the requirements and mechanisms for Data Recipient accreditation negotiation.

  • What additional information will the CDR Register require to convey the trust of different types of Data Recipients in the ecosystem?
  • How can bilateral trust and accreditation be issued by Data Holders to individual Data Recipients?
  • What additional capability should be investigated to address current OAuth authorisation scope negotiation limitations?
  • What additional Accredited Data Recipient and associated Software Product lifecycle information should be available from the CDR Register?

Feedback closes on the 1st of May 2022
