The Commission’s policy and plans demonstrate how we comply with the NSW Privacy Laws.
Personal Injury Commission and NSW Privacy Laws
The NSW Privacy Laws do not affect the exercise of the Personal Injury Commission’s judicial function in relation to hearing or determining proceedings before it. Documents, records and other material relating to proceedings are dealt with, as required, by the Personal Injury Commission Act 2020 (PIC Act), enabling legislation and the Personal Injury Commission Rules 2021 (PIC Rules). For example, decisions issued by the Commission are exempt from these privacy laws – see the Commission’s Decision publication policy.
The Commission must comply with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 in relation to the general management and administration of its Registry and office resources. The NSW Privacy Laws set out privacy standards known as Information Protection Principles and Health Privacy Principles. These laws and standards regulate the way we, collect, use, store and disclose personal and health information.
