Submission to the Consultation on the ACCC Digital Platforms Inquiry Preliminary Report December 2018

CPRC noted the lack of an integrated framework for consumer data management and regulation in Australia and recommends a full and thorough economy-wide review of our data governance framework. We highlighted that the first goal of policymakers in responding to the issues outlined in the Preliminary Report should be to increase transparency – to improve consumer comprehension and agency, shine a light on data collection and sharing practices to enable more effective regulatory remedies, and as a lever to build trust. We strongly supported Preliminary recommendations 8, 9, 10 and 11 – all of which are designed to respond to the market and regulatory failure in personal data collection practices in Australia.
