Privacy impact assessments

Read our department’s privacy impact assessment (PIA) register.

We publish a register of all PIAs we conduct.

A PIA is a systematic assessment of a project’s impact on the privacy of individuals. It identifies steps for minimising that impact.

PIAs are compulsory for projects with a new or changed way of handling personal information that is likely to have a significant impact on the privacy of individuals.
