Selected APF Papers Sorted by Jurisdiction

This document indexes papers according to the jurisdictions to which they are relevant.

Submissions regarding a Non-Government matter appear under the appropriate Non-Government heading, even if they were made to a Federal, State or Territory Parliament or Government Agency.

This index reflects work undertaken by the APF up to 31 July 2014.

The index is comprehensive since 2002. It also includes key documents dating back to 1987,
and papers by APF's sibling organisation the Australian Privacy Charter Council (1994-2002).

See also the chronological index, which is always up-to-date.

A companion document indexes papers by topic-areas. See also the Campaigns pages.

Private Sector – For Profit

This section is concerned with privacy-intrusive actions by corporations, and by industry associations that represent their interests. For specific topics, see also the index to policy-areas.

Private Sector – Not For Profit

This section is concerned with privacy-invasive behaviours of incorporated associations, charities, etc., but excluding industry associations whose function is to represent the interests of for-profit businesses. For specific topics, see also the index to policy-areas.


This section is concerned with actions by individuals that intrude on the privacy of others. For specific topics, see also the index to policy-areas.

Federal Public Sector

This section is concerned with privacy-invasive behaviour by the Commonwealth government. A vast amount of the APF's efforts have had to be spent in this area, partly because of the inherently privacy-invasive nature of some of what government agencies do, but particularly because of the very strong orientation of senior government executives towards central planning and social control, and wilful avoidance of recognising the importance of privacy.

So enormous is the range of issues that the APF has had to deal with that it is of little value to list papers here. Instead, use the index to policy-areas to find relevant documents.
