How to use these resources
PPIPA in Practice is a fully annotated guide to the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW). ‘PPIPA’ is the key Act that applies to State government agencies, universities and local councils in NSW. It also includes all cases decided under the Health Records & Information Privacy Act 2002 (NSW), known as ‘HRIPA’, which applies to the private sector in NSW as well as public sector agencies.
PPIPA in Practice is designed to provide you with quick and comprehensive information about how each section of PPIPA (and HRIPA) is being interpreted and applied in practice.
PPIPA in Practice brings together information and interpretations from over 500 NSW privacy cases decided since 2001, including seminal Court of Appeal cases. It also incorporates the Privacy Commissioner’s advice on the legislation, drawn from various guidelines, newsletters and submissions.
The guide is constantly updated so you have the latest information available. We have been publishing quarterly since 2007. After downloading the current edition, you will receive your next three editions by email. As this is an annual subscription product, it is excluded from discounts available on our other compliance kits.
PPIPA in Practice also works as a companion guide to Untangling the IPPs and HPPs, our decision-tree guide to the Disclosure rules that apply under NSW law.
