 News and 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.
