The Privacy Commissioner reports to Parliament at regular intervals on the operation of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (PPIP Act) and Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 (HRIP Acts).
The Information Commissioner reports to Parliament at regular intervals on the operation of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act) and Government Information (Information Commissioner) Act 2009 (GIIC Act).
