Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 6 Hansard (16 May) . . Page.. 1692 ..

MR WOOD (continuing):

The Road Transport Authority will use the stored images primarily to validate identity where a person requests a replacement drivers licence or a proof-of-age card but cannot provide adequate photo identification to back up that request. This is a current area of high risk of identity fraud.

Protocols covering the collection, storage and security, use and disclosure of the stored images have been submitted to the Privacy Commissioner. The protocols set out the details of how the authority will control, use and disclose the stored images. The protocols will be complemented by security procedures and data integrity measures in the rego.act computer system.

The bill also includes some minor amendments to streamline the workings of sections relating to the appointment of authorised persons for the purposes of the road transport legislation.

Mr Speaker, I seek the support of all members for these amendments, which will enable the Road Transport Authority to do its part in better addressing vehicle theft and identity fraud issues.

Debate (on motion by Mr Cornwell ) adjourned to the next sitting.
