Digital ID legislation – Accreditation Rules
What’s in the Accreditation Rules?
The Accreditation Rules will underpin the voluntary Accreditation Scheme for Digital ID service providers established by the Digital ID Bill. The Accreditation Rules will be an evolution of the Australian Government’s framework for its existing accreditation scheme, the Trusted Digital Identity Framework (TDIF).
Your Guide to the Accreditation Rules explains differences between the current TDIF and the Accreditation Rules.
The Accreditation Rules contain global best practices and standards for safe, secure, accessible and privacy enhancing Digital ID services.
The Accreditation Rules detail the requirements for a Digital ID service provider to become accredited and maintain their accreditation, covering matters such as fraud management, protective security, privacy, and usability and accessibility.
The Accreditation Rules also set out operational matters about how service providers will demonstrate their compliance with the Accreditation Rules.
