Description

The Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records Act 2012 requires the Australian Information Commissioner to formulate guidelines outlining how the Commissioner will approach enforcement issues relating to the eHealth record system.
 
The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) is the independent regulator of privacy aspects of Australia’s personally controlled electronic health (eHealth) record system.
The Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records Act 2012 (PCEHR Act) requires the Australian Information Commissioner to formulate guidelines outlining how the Commissioner will approach enforcement issues relating to the eHealth record system (the OAIC’s Enforcement Guidelines).
The OAIC has prepared draft Enforcement Guidelines for public consultation, together with this consultation paper to assist interested parties in preparing comments in response to the OAIC’s proposed guidelines and approach.
The draft Enforcement Guidelines are available in PDF, RTF and Word versions.
