Policy overview

The Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (the PPIPA) requires all councils to have a Privacy Management Plan outlining their policies and practices to ensure compliance with the requirements of the PPIPA and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (the HRIPA).

The Draft Privacy Management Plan outlines how Council manages Personal Information in accordance with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (the PPIPA) and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (the HRIPA). 

The Draft Privacy Management Plan is based on the model document provided by the Information Privacy Commissioner. The current version of the document was due for review given it was last re-adopted in 2019. Subsequently, the Plan has been reviewed and updated accordingly in accordance with current legislation and best practice guidance.

For more details, see the Draft Privacy Management Plan in the document library.
