Details

To ensure that departments, local authorities and the wider public sector understand what safeguards are in place and need to be followed, the government has published four codes of practice to give clarity and transparency over how the powers in the Bill will operate. They cover:

  • A code of practice on Public Service Delivery, Fraud and Debt;
  • A code of practice for civil registration officials;
  • A code of practice and accreditation criteria for access to data for research purposes; and
  • A statement of principles and procedures and code of practice for changes to data systems.
