The Customs and Excise (Joint Border Management Information Sharing and Other Matters) Amendment Bill proposes the introduction of an untested and open-ended information sharing regime for border information. Because sensitive personal information is shared at the border, this raises significant privacy concerns. The Privacy Commissioner’s submission recommends that a decision on this framework is delayed to allow the necessary testing and analysis to be done. Alternatively, the information which can be shared under this regime should be limited. View the full submission. 14 October 2010
