About this register

This register is a record of all Consumer Data Right exemptions granted by the ACCC.

The Consumer Data Right is a world-leading data sharing and portability initiative that:

  • allows consumers to safely share the data that businesses hold about them with accredited third parties
  • helps consumers compare between products and services to find offers that best match their needs, and
  • encourages competition between providers, leading to more innovative products and services.

The ACCC has a broad discretionary power under section 56GD of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 to exempt a person from the Consumer Data Right regime. This includes:

  • provisions in Part IVD in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010
  • regulations made for the purposes of Part IVD, and
  • the consumer data rules.

Each exemption application is assessed on a case-by-case basis. An exemption may or may not be time limited and can be subject to conditions. The ACCC cannot retrospectively grant an exemption for conduct that has occurred.
