 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.

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