Consumer Data Right - strategic assessment and telecommunications sectoral assessment consultation papers


22 July 2021

As announced in the Budget 2021-22, Treasury is conducting:

  • a strategic assessment to deliver the roadmap for the economy-wide roll-out of the Consumer Data Right, and
  • a sectoral assessment of the telecommunications sector.

The Government has today commenced consultation on these two assessments. Public consultation papers are now available on the Treasury website. Written submissions are sought from stakeholders on the questions contained in the consultation papers (see links in the sidebar).

Responses to the strategic assessment consultation will inform Treasury’s analysis and advice to the Government about how the CDR should be rolled out. The strategic assessment process will form the foundations of the Government’s CDR Implementation Roadmap. You can submit responses to this consultation up until 2 September 2021.

Responses to the telecommunications sectoral assessment consultation will inform the final report, which the Minister will consider when deciding whether to designate telecommunications as a CDR sector. The telecommunications sectoral assessment is conducted with reference to the criteria set out in section 56AD the Competition and Consumer Act 2010. You can submit responses to this consultation up until 19 August 2021
