Consumer Data Right - CDR Rules Maintenance

17 days left to have your say
Consultation Type

The Consumer Data Right (CDR) is a rules and technical standards‑based framework that gives consumers the right to use the data Australian businesses hold about them for their own benefit.

The CDR is anticipated to expand and evolve over the next decade.

Treasury welcomes submissions about possible maintenance changes to the CDR rules to ensure they are fit‑for‑purpose and support the policy aims of CDR. For example, Treasury welcomes submissions about possible clarifications to the rules to ensure that participants can easily understand their rights and obligations under the CDR.


You can submit responses to this consultation up until 23 December 2022. Interested parties are invited to comment on this consultation. 

Please note that Treasury intends to conduct ongoing consultation in relation to the CDR rules, and a further consultation period will open in early 2023.

While submissions may be lodged electronically or by post, electronic lodgement is preferred. For accessibility reasons, please submit responses sent via email in a Word or RTF format. An additional PDF version may also be submitted.

All information (including name and address details) contained in submissions will be made available to the public on the Treasury website unless you indicate that you would like all or part of your submission to remain in confidence. Automatically generated confidentiality statements in emails do not suffice for this purpose. Respondents who would like part of their submission to remain in confidence should provide this information marked as such in a separate attachment.

Legal requirements, such as those imposed by the Freedom of Information Act 1982, may affect the confidentiality of your submission.
