IIC Australian Chapter Seminar

Join the Australian Chapter of the International Institute of Communications, and colleagues from across a range of sectors, to discuss the introduction of Australia’s consumer data right that will be rolled out in Australia’s banking sector in 2019, followed by the telecommunications and retail energy sectors.

This right will give consumers and businesses access to their data and allow them to share it with trusted entities to facilitate the provision of services to the consumer such as comparison and switching services.

This seminar follows the IIC’s successful Telecommunications and Media Forum in Sydney in July where Peter Harris gave a Productivity Commission perspective on the data right in his published speech.

Kindly hosted by Holding Redlich in both Sydney and Melbourne, and moderated by Holding Redlich partner, Angela Flannery, you will hear from:

  • Bruce Cooper, General Manager, Consumer Data Right Branch, Australian Competition & Consumer Commission
  • Pip Freebairn, Policy Director, Economics and Industry Policy, Australian Banking Association
  • Luke van Hooft, Director, Economic Regulation, Optus

With insights from Dr Bill Roberts, Head of Open Banking at the UK Competition and Markets Authority in relation to the implementation of the UK’s open banking regime (pre-recorded).
