The ACCC has made amendments to the Consumer Data Right Rules. These amendments permit the use of accredited intermediaries to collect data, through an expansion of the rules relating to outsourced service providers. The amendments expand the Consumer Data Right system by allowing for accredited businesses to rely on other accredited businesses to collect Consumer Data Right data on their behalf, so they can provide goods and services to consumers.
The Competition and Consumer (Consumer Data Right) Amendment Rules (No. 2) 2020 (Accredited Intermediary Rules) commenced on 2 October 2020 and are available on the Federal Register of Legislation.
The Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the Accredited Intermediary Rules and the ACCC’s response to the PIA are both available below.
