Privacy Management Plan

Section 33 of the the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act, 1998 (PPIPA) requires all public sector agencies to prepare a Privacy Management Plan (the 'Plan') to deal with:

  • The devising of policies and practices to ensure compliance by the agency with the requirements of the PPIPA.
  • The dissemination of those policies and practices to persons within the agency.
  • The procedures that the agency proposes for internal review of privacy complaints.
  • Such other matters as are considered relevant by the agency in relation to privacy and the protection of personal information held by it.

The Plan has been prepared for the purpose of section 33 of the PPIPA. It is a model plan which was developed for NSW councils by the Office of Local Government, in consultation with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and Local Government NSW. The Plan identifies how Wingecarribee Shire Council (Council) complies with the Information Privacy Protection Principles in both the PPIPA and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (HRIPA).
