Abstract

Recent reforms to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cwlth)1 have led to a single set of Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), replacing the former National Privacy Principles (NPPs) and Information Privacy Principles (IPPs). Although a key objective of the reforms was to ensure greater consistency on privacy regulation in Australia,2 the law surrounding disclosure of genetic information to at-risk genetic relatives varies across Australia.
