Attorneys-General from each Australian jurisdiction have agreed to consult on possible arrangements for a National Register of Enduring Powers of Attorney. We have prepared a consultation paper to seek your views.
In March 2020, a Consultation Regulation Impact Statement was released to examine the regulatory options under consideration, in order to understand their economic and social impacts, and determine the relative costs and benefits of proposed Enduring Power of Attorney safeguarding options.
In July 2017, the Australian Government invited businesses and interested stakeholders to comment on a discussion paper about Australia's participation in the Cross Border Privacy Rules system. The system was developed by participating APEC economies with the aim of building consumer, business and regulator trust in cross border flows of personal information.
