Data Governance Australia is committed to setting industry standards and benchmarks for the responsible and ethical collection, use and management of data in Australia.
We have developed a Code of Practice as part of our on-going effort to set leading industry standards, promote a culture of best practice, and to drive innovation by increasing consumer confidence and trust in the data practices of organisations.
The DGA Code of Practice is a principles-based self-regulatory regime that sets leading industry standards and benchmarks for responsible and ethical data-practices through 9 core principles*:
- No-harm rule
- Honesty & transparency
- Accuracy and access
* DGA is also consulting with relevant government bodies and industry stakeholder to develop solutions for data portability issues.
Enforced & Overseen by the Code Authority
The DGA Code of Practice will be enforced and overseen by an independent Code Authority, which consists of 7 members – 3 members from consumer groups, 3 members from industry, and an independent Chair. The Code Authority provides consumers with an expedient and low-cost process to resolve issues with DGA Code Organisations.
The DGA Code Authority Charter will be made available soon.
