The OAIC has launched a consultation on a proposed Guide to Privacy Regulatory Action. The Guide will support the newly published  Privacy Regulatory Action Policy (see above) by providing a more detailed explanation of the Australian Privacy Commissioner’s powers and how they will be used, as well as practical guidance for OAIC staff exercising those powers. The consultation seeks the views of stakeholders on whether the Guide is clear in its explanation of the OAIC’s approach to the exercise of its regulatory powers.
