Keeping you informed of changes in legislation that are relevant to RMIT
Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Act 2015
On 13 April 2015 the Australian Parliament passed the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Act 2015 (“the Act”). The Act introduces a statutory obligation for Australian telecommunication service providers to retain, for a period of two years, particular types of telecommunications data (metadata) and introduces certain reforms to the regimes applying to the access of stored communications and telecommunications data under the Act. RMIT falls within this definition due to the services we provide and is required to comply with the data retention obligations of the Act for our wireless network service.
The Data Retrieval Implementation Project Group was established in 2015 to facilitate the legislative requirements. As part of compliance, RMIT has developed a process to manage the reporting requirements.
