Register of Accredited Entities
Accreditation is one of the safeguards of the DATA Scheme. It ensures that users are capable of handling public sector data and minimising the risk of unauthorised access or use. Only certain Commonwealth, state and territory government bodies and Australian universities can be accredited.
Under the DATA Scheme, Accredited Users can request Australian Government data from a Data Custodian. An Accredited Data Service Provider can be used to provide data services to support the data sharing project.
