105 Information matching programmes to be reported on in annual report


The Commissioner shall include in every annual report of the Commissioner under section 150 of the Crown Entities Act 2004, in relation to each authorised information matching programme that is carried out (in whole or in part) during the year to which the report relates,—


an outline of the programme; and


an assessment of the extent of the programme’s compliance, during that year, with—


the information matching rules; and


the details of each extension granted under section 102, the reasons why the extension was granted, and the grounds in support of those reasons; and


the details of each approval given, during that year, under clause 3 of Schedule 4, the reasons why the approval was given, and the grounds in support of those reasons.


Nothing in subsection (1) requires the Commissioner to include in any annual report, in respect of any authorised information matching programme, any information the disclosure of which would be likely to frustrate the objective of the programme.


For the purposes of carrying out any assessment required by subsection (1)(b), Part 9 shall apply, with such modifications as are necessary, as if the assessment were an investigation under Part 8.
