Privacy (International Money Transfers) Temporary Public Interest Determination 2014 (No. 1)

ARCHIVED: This determination ceased on 25 February 2015 and was replaced by Privacy (International Money Transfers) Public Interest Determination 2015 (No. 1)


This temporary determination, and the associated generalising determination, are to permit Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) and other authorised-deposit taking institutions within the meaning of the Banking Act 1959 (ADIs) to disclose the personal information of a beneficiary of an international money transfer (IMT) to an overseas financial institution when processing an IMT without breaching the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs).

Specifically, these determinations will ensure that ANZ and other ADIs do not breach APP 8.1 when disclosing the beneficiary’s personal information to the overseas financial institution, and are not held to breach another APP (other than APP 1) as a result of being held accountable for an act or practice of the overseas financial institution in relation to that information (in accordance with subsection 16C(2)).
