Competition and Consumer Point-in-Time Service Updates

Wednesday 19 June 2024 @ 9.30 a.m.

The Competition and Consumer Point-in-Time Service has been updated to include the Digital ID (Transitional and Consequential Provisions) Act 2024 (Cth) (Act No. 26 of 2024), the Telecommunications Legislation Amendment (Enhancing Consumer Safeguards and Other Measures) Act 2024 (Cth) (Act No. 36 of 2024), and the Administrative Review Tribunal (Consequential and Transitional Provisions No. 1) Act 2024 (Cth) (Act No. 38 of 2024).

Act 26 of 2024

This Act, together with the Digital ID Act 2024 (Cth), aims to provide individuals with secure, convenient, voluntary and inclusive ways to verify their identity for use in online transactions with government and businesses.

Act 36 of 2024

The Act amends the Telecommunications Act 1997 (Cth), the Telecommunications (Consumer Protection and Service Standards) Act 1999 (Cth) and the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) to refine the operation of the statutory infrastructure provider (SIP) regime. The Act also makes technical and other amendments to legislation to improve the operation of telecommunications regulation outside the SIP regime, including changes that enhance the enforcement and reporting powers of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Act 38 of 2024

This Act repeals the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act 1975 (Cth) (the AAT Act) and makes consequential amendments to various Commonwealth Acts to help facilitate the transition from the Administrative Appeals Tribunal to the Administrative Review Tribunal as established under the Administrative Review Tribunal Act 2024 (Cth).

These amendments have been updated in the Point-in-Time Competition and Consumer Service current to 19 June 2024. (NB: Subscription required).
