Key Documents

As part of the Government’s commitment to roll out the Consumer Data Right (CDR) economy wide, Treasury conducted a sectoral assessment on the telecommunications sector, to inform the Minister’s decision on whether to designate the telecommunications sector to the CDR and in what form. The sectoral assessment concluded on 23 November 2021, with the Government announcing the release of Treasury’s final sectoral assessment report recommending telecommunications be the third sector designated for the CDR.

The Government is seeking feedback on the draft designation instrument, which sets out the scope of datasets and data holders proposed to be designated in the telecommunications sector, before the Minister makes a final decision.
