Public consultation on Artificial Intelligence privacy guidance

OVIC is updating its guidance on Artificial Intelligence – Understanding privacy obligations. Tell us what should be included, to ensure our guidance is relevant, practical, clear, accessible, and useful.

This page provides more information about the consultation and a link to download the feedback form.


The Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner (OVIC) is updating its online resource, Artificial Intelligence – Understanding privacy obligations (OVIC’s AI privacy guidance).

The purpose of OVIC’s AI privacy guidance is to assist Victorian public sector organisations (VPS organisations) to consider their privacy obligations under the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic), when using or considering using personal information in Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems and applications.

Why is OVIC updating its AI privacy guidance?

Since OVIC first published its AI privacy guidance in 2021, the breadth and availability of AI technologies has grown, and its use in the Victorian public sector has increased. The now widespread public availability of generative AI Large Language Model applications (LLMs) is just one example of the changing and varied AI landscape.

OVIC is updating its AI privacy guidance, to ensure it is relevant, useful, clear, accessible, and practical to VPS organisations when they are designing, procuring, deploying and using AI systems.
