Privacy - Internal privacy guidelines for staff

Introductory note:
If the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act) applies to your organisation, under Australian Privacy Principle (APP) 1 in Sch 1 to the Privacy Act you must have a clearly expressed and up-to-date APP Privacy Policy about how you manage personal information.

How to use this checklist:
This practical checklist is designed to assist you in developing internal staff guidelines and policies documents which may assist in meeting your APP 1 requirements. There is no one size fits all approach. The nature and scale of your staff policies and procedures will depend entirely on the size, sale and operational needs of your organisation.
