Controlled disclosure of criminal record data

24 Jul 2006
Description

Victoria’s system of criminal record checks needs legislative reform to meet the pressures of increasing demand and changing technologies, according to a new report by Paul Chadwick, Victorian Privacy Commissioner (OVPC). The report recommends that the Government develop a Controlled Disclosure of Criminal Records Bill to provide for the first time in Victoria a central, solid, precise statutory framework for the handling of criminal record data, a highly sensitive category of personal information. Three key principles should apply - avoidance of unjust discrimination, proportionality and clarity.
