The Government is seeking feedback on the draft Digital Identity Bill 2023, including views on the Digital Identity Rules and Digital ID Accreditation.
Consultation on the Bill is now open and runs until 10 October 2023.
The legislation when passed will move Digital ID to a nationally regulated system which will be accessible across both the public and private sectors and will include strong privacy provisions. It will establish the ACCC as the initial regulator.
Feedback from this process will help shape the effective implementation of Digital ID as the government’s national identity system to make Australia’s online services and transactions safer and more convenient.

The Digital ID Taskforce have also prepared an explanatory video on Digital ID.
