A guide to the application of privacy laws.


The Privacy Commissioner has published a guide to help organisations develop new products and business systems that comply with legislative privacy requirements and meet broader community privacy expectations.

The Privacy Impact Assessment Guide provides a threshold assessment tool as well as a framework for formal privacy impact assessment.  It contains some practical compliance checklists as well as useful tools to assess privacy impacts and to map  information flows.  The guide also provides tips for planning the best process for a project.  It does not impose a particular format for an assessment but allows a flexible approach depending on the nature of the project and the information collected.
