Investigations, Audits & Examinations

OVIC has a number of investigative functions:

  • Examine and audit — OVIC may examine the practices or audit the records of a regulated body to assess compliance with the IPPs. OVIC may conduct an examination or audit as a periodic assurance tool, to assess a potential privacy breach or to better understand an issue.
  • Investigate and issue a Compliance Notice — Where OVIC identifies serious, flagrant or repeated breaches of the IPPs, OVIC may investigate and issue a Compliance Notice. A Compliance Notice is a notice requiring the regulated body to take specified action within a specified time to remedy breaches and comply with IPPs and the PDP Act.
  • Investigate on own motion – OVIC can investigate how regulated bodies comply with the FOI Act.

This page contains reports of investigations, audits, and examinations.
