Our approved information sharing agreement (AISA) with New Zealand Police, the New Zealand Customs Service and the Serious Fraud Office sets out key activities that we need to report on each year in our annual report.
Under sections 154(1)(b), 155 and 156 of the Privacy Act 2020, the Privacy Commissioner has specified the following reporting in respect of the AISA for: supply of information for the purpose of prevention, detection, investigation or providing evidence of serious crime.
A copy of the AISA is available to view on our website.
Information shared from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022
Please note that the Memorandum of Understanding with the New Zealand Customs Service and the Serious Fraud Office was signed in December 2020, so the sharing with those agencies started from January 2021 onwards.
