The consumer watchdog issued a notice on Wednesday seeking feedback from consumers, businesses and community organisations on the approach and positions it proposes to take in setting up the CDR rules.
As part of the consultation process, the ACCC plans to hold a number of stakeholder forums.
The CDR is a competition and consumer reform announced by the Australian Government in May 2018 and the ACCC has been given the lead role in rule-making, consumer education and enforcement.
“The overarching principle the ACCC will take is to implement the Consumer Data Right in a way that provides benefits to consumers, without compromising data security,
“The CDR will be a major change in the way consumers can use their data and consulting the views of consumers and businesses is a top priority for the ACCC.”
Court said the current Rules Framework had a banking focus, because the banking sector was the first that would make the CDR available to consumers.
Other sectors would be brought into the CDR regime over time, and the government has announced energy and telecommunications should be the next sectors included.
“The ACCC will work toward developing frameworks tailored to specific industries as they are designated and added to the CDR regime,” Court said.
