The Privacy (Australian Government Agencies—Governance) APP Code 2017 (Cth) (the APP Code) requires that all agencies, including the National Museum of Australia (the Museum) must conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for all high privacy risk projects.

A project may be a high privacy risk project if the Museum considers that the project involves any new or changed ways of handling personal information that are likely to have a significant impact on the privacy of individuals.

The Museum is also required to conduct a PIA if directed to do so by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).

The Museum is required to maintain a register of all PIAs it conducts and must publish that register, or a version of that register, on its website.

This following PIA register is published in compliance with the APP Code.
