Consumer data right (CDR)

Consultation on proposed changes to the Consumer Data Right Rules18 November 2020

The ACCC sought views on changes to the Competition and Consumer (Consumer Data Right) Rules 2020 (Rules). These changes are intended to expand the Rules and allow for the entry of a greater number and type of businesses in Consumer Data Right. We published a consultation paper on 30 September 2020 outlining our key proposals including:

  • changes to the accreditation process to include new restricted tiers of accreditation
  • rules to allow consumers to consent to the disclosure of Consumer Data Right data to third parties
  • increased functionality to improve consumer experience.

Submissions closed on 29 October 2020 and are available below.
