DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 17th of December

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.


Decision Made

The following Decisions have been Approved by the Chair:


Government Response to the Inquiry into Future Directions for the Consumer Data Right

On 14 December 2021, the Government released its response to the Final Report of the Inquiry into Future Directions for the Consumer Data Right (the Inquiry) following extensive targeted engagement with interested parties. The Government’s response commits to significantly strengthen and deepen the Consumer Data Right’s (CDR) functionality and use through the implementation of third-party action and payment initiation reforms, along with other recommended reforms that will grow the CDR ecosystem and foster greater international engagement. This will expand the CDR beyond a data portability framework, with a capability akin to a digital power-of-attorney.

Decision Proposal 222

The second iteration of Decision Proposal 222 has been published on the 17th of December 2021.

This DP progresses from the initial DP222 consultation, which concluded on 30 November 2021, and has been further informed by 2 rounds of consumer experience research conducted in November.

Feedback is now open for this proposal for an extended period to account for the end of year break. This consultation will close on Friday 21st January 2022.
