Have your say on Digital Identity

16 November 2020

The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) is seeking the community’s views on proposed legislation that will support and strengthen an expanded Digital Identity system in Australia.


As part of this consultation, the DTA has today released a public consultation paper on the proposed legislation.

The Digital Identity Legislation seeks to further enhance existing privacy and consumer safeguards for the Digital Identity system and establish permanent governance arrangements.

Responses to the consultation questions outlined in the paper are invited from anyone with an interest in Digital Identity.

More than 1.8 million Australians and 1.2 million businesses already have secure and quick access to over 70 government services using myGovID.

The legislation will make sure all Australians have trust and confidence in the system, as it is expanded to include state, territory and private sector services.

The Digital Identity Legislation Consultation Paper outlines key issues surrounding the development of the legislation and poses specific questions about its design, scope and content.

Submissions will be accepted until 5pm AEDT on Friday 18 December.
