Privacy Impact Assessment register

Under the Privacy (Australian Government Agencies – Governance) APP Code 2017 (Privacy Code), the Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority (IHACPA) is required to maintain and publish a register of the Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) it conducts for all high-risk privacy projects. 

A project may be a high privacy risk project if IHACPA reasonably considers that the project involves any new or changed ways of handling personal information that are likely to have a significant impact on the privacy of individuals.

Since the Privacy Code came into effect on 1 July 2018, IHACPA has conducted two PIAs.

IHACPA will incorporate PIAs into the register as they are completed.
