This Compliance Note is intended for use by all State and Local government agencies, and by private companies, organisations and individuals so that they can conform to the Commonwealth law which protects persons who have certain old minor criminal convictions.
The purpose of this Compliance Note is to provide Commonwealth authorities with: a background to the new law on old conviction information under the Crimes Act 1914, PartVIIC; an explanation of the interaction between the law and the Information Privacy Principles (IPPs) of the Privacy Act; guidelines on practices which should be followed by Commonwealth authorities to ensure compliance with Part VIIC of the Crimes Act and the Privacy Act; and the role of the Privacy Commissioner in regard to these laws.
