Description

Opened consultation on Privacy Amendment Bill (No. 292-1) including data protection regulation

On 6 May 2024, the Parliament of New Zealand opened a consultation on the Privacy Amendment Bill (No. 292-1), which proposes amendments to the Privacy Act 2020. The consultation will be closed on 14 June 2024. The amendment proposes the introduction of a new information privacy principle (IPP 3A) concerning the indirect collection of personal information. This principle requires agencies to inform individuals when their personal information is collected indirectly, providing information on the collection's purpose, the intended recipients, and the individual's rights. Additionally, the Bill adds provisions on how agencies are required to respond to certain requests from data subjects.
