    This March the Office of the National Data Commissioner is hosting another series of roundtable discussions to show how our thinking has evolved based on your feedback and to hear your views.

    Each roundtable will go for two horus and cover key topics such as:

    • Scope of the legislation and interaction with other schemes

    • The types of purposes the Data Sharing legislation should enable

    • Safeguards, privacy and security of data

    • Participants in the system and accreditation

    • Accountability and enforcement

    • Data Sharing Principles

    To develop this legislation properly and make sure it benefits all Australians, we need your continued feedback to shape its direction and where the boundaries should be.

    For Data Sharing Principles, we will be holding an additional 30 minute focus session at the end of each roundtable to discuss this risk management framework further. If you would like to participate in this conversation, please stay on once the main part of the roundtable is concluded.

    We’ll be sending out agenda papers and relevant documents prior to the events.

    To register, please select the time you are available to attend.

    There are only a certain number of seats at each roundtable. In the event that the roundtables are over-subscribed, we will contact the waitlisted participants for additional workshops at a later date.

    If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at

    We look forward to meeting with you.


    Last year, we hosted 40 discussion groups around Australia to connect with interested stakeholders on the Government’s public sector data reforms.

    We spoke with a range of peak bodies, businesses, research institutions and interested people to better understand views and generate discussion on topics related to public sector data sharing. We received feedback that participants were very happy to be involved in the conversation and supported the establishment of the National Data Commissioner. We also heard that people were excited about sharing data for research and development and with the imposition of additional data sharing transparency and accountability measures.

    However, there are still themes we want to continue to workshop with the community to make sure we understand all perspectives. In particular, some stakeholders raised concerns around privacy safeguards, commercial use of data, and the use of data under this legislation for compliance action against individuals. We want to keep this conversation going to make sure we get the balance between privacy and innovation right.
