Privacy codes

45.16 The ALRC considers the co-regulatory aspects of the Privacy Act in Chapter 48. These are the provisions in Part IIIAA that allow organisations to develop privacy codes, which, when approved by the OPC, replace the NPPs. The ALRC recommends that the provisions be amended so that privacy codes do not replace the model UPPs, but operate in addition to them, providing guidance on how one or more of the principles are to be applied or complied with by an agency or organisation.[13]
