Public consultation on Australia’s Digital Identity legislation

As part of the consultation on Australia’s Digital Identity legislation, the Australian Government recently sought feedback on the Digital Identity Legislation Position Paper.

The Position Paper consultation period closed on 14 July 2021 and we are currently collating responses. This feedback will guide the development of proposed legislation intended to support an expanded Digital Identity system in Australia.

The purpose of the legislation is to establish permanent governance arrangements for the system. It will enshrine in law a range of privacy and consumer protections and enable the Digital Identity system to be used confidently across federal, state, territory and local governments as well as the private sector.

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us on the Digital Identity Legislation Position Paper.
