Privacy Law Update 2014 – Australia’s New Privacy Regime

Significant reforms to the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act) came into effect on 12 March 2014. The Privacy Act regulates the activities of both the private sector and the Commonwealth public sector in Australia.

Ashurst and Thomson Reuters have partnered together to provide expert commentary on the requirements under the new law, highlight the major differences between the new and old privacy regimes, and offer practical steps for entities to consider as part of the transition from the old regime to the new.

The Privacy Law Update 2014 – Australia’s New Privacy Regime is the essential guide for Australian Government agencies and businesses which will all be affected by the significant changes.

The publication is divided into seven parts:

• Part A – Overview of Australia’s new privacy regime

• Part B – Full text of the Australian Privacy Principles

• Part C – The reform process

• Part D – How the privacy principles have changed

• Part E – Other relevant Commonwealth laws

• Part F – State and Territory privacy laws

• Part G – Practical steps
