Discussion paper

The Office of the National Data Commissioner has released this discussion paper on the proposed Accreditation Framework, which is open for submissions between 14 September and 6 November 2020.

Accreditation will provide:

  • accountability and transparency about who is accessing government data
  • oversight of those requesting access to government data to ensure they adhere to the standards of government data use
  • a standardised approach to negotiating the terms of access

Accreditation will ensure data users meet a range of requirements prior to receiving access to government data. The accreditation process will make sure data users understand their obligations and responsibilities when handling government data. This includes successfully completing mandatory training through the Office of the National Data Commissioner.
