109G Amendment of Schedule 4A


The Governor-General may, by Order in Council made on the recommendation of the responsible Minister given after consultation with the Privacy Commissioner,—


add, remove, amend, or replace any item in Schedule 4A; or


repeal Schedule 4A and substitute a new schedule.


Before recommending the making of an Order in Council facilitating access by an accessing agency to identity information held by a holder agency, the responsible Minister must be satisfied that—


the purpose for which the identity information is to be accessed relates to a specified function of the accessing agency; and


the identity information to be accessed is no more than is reasonably necessary to enable the accessing agency to achieve that purpose; and


any potential conflicts or inconsistencies between the sharing of personal information under Schedule 4A and any other enactment have been identified and appropriately addressed.
