About Australia’s Privacy Law
Australia protects information through a mix of federal, state, and territory laws. The Federal Privacy Act 1988 – or Privacy Act for short, is the foundation of Australia’s information protection regime. The Privacy Act contains a code of conduct, known as the Australian Privacy Principles – or APPs for short. The APPs govern how information can be collected, used, and disclosed. The Privacy Act, following its enactment in 1988, has undergone two key amendments. In 2000, the Privacy Act was expanded to include the private sector. In 2014, following a review by the Australian Law Reform Commission, the Privacy Act was extensively updated The Privacy Act was updated again in 2020.
