Division 5.2Research authorisations

Subdivision 5.2.1Introduction

5.7  Simplified outline of this Division

Telstra can only disclose unlisted mobile number information to an authorised research entity (regulation 5.6).

An authorised research entity is a person covered by a research authorisation granted by the ACMA under this Division. A research authorisation may cover more than one authorised research entity.

Before the research authorisation is granted, the ACMA must be satisfied, among other things, that each research entity sought to be authorised will use the unlisted mobile number information for certain kinds of research. The research authorisation starts on the first day Telstra provides unlisted mobile number information to an authorised research entity and ends at the end of the period specified in the authorisation (which can be no longer than 12 months).

An authorised research entity must comply with the conditions set out in Subdivision 5.2.3 and any further conditions specified by the ACMA. Failure to comply with these conditions may lead to the authorised research entity being removed from the authorisation by the ACMA and will be considered by the ACMA if the entity is specified in an application for another research authorisation. A contravention of a condition is an offence (see regulation 5.36).

After a research authorisation comes to an end, or if a research entity is removed from an authorisation, an authorised research entity must comply with the requirements of regulations 5.30 and 5.31 in relation to the unlisted mobile number information and research information the entity has received. Failure to comply with this regulation will be considered by the ACMA if the entity is specified in an application for another research authorisation. A contravention of regulation 5.30 or 5.31 is an offence (see regulation 5.36).

Subdivision 5.2.2Application for, and grant of, research authorisations

5.8  Applying for research authorisations

             (1)  A person may apply to the ACMA for a research authorisation to cover that person and any other persons specified in the application.

             (2)  The request must state the effect of subregulation (3).

             (3)  If the entity does not provide the information within 90 days, the ACMA may treat the application as if it did not specify the entity.

5.10  ACMA may consult

                   Before granting a research authorisation, the ACMA may consult any person or body the ACMA considers appropriate.

5.11  Research authorisations

Grant of research authorisation

             (1)  On an application for a research authorisation in accordance with regulation 5.8, the ACMA must grant the authorisation if the ACMA is reasonably satisfied that:

                     (a)  the kind or kinds of research proposed to be covered by the authorisation is permitted research; and

                     (b)  each research entity will comply with the conditions of the authorisation (including any additional conditions specified by the ACMA under subregulation 5.12(4)); and

                     (c)  regulations 5.30 and 5.31 will be complied with by each research entity if the authorisation ends or the entity is removed from the authorisation.

Note:          If the ACMA decides not to grant the authorisation, a research entity, or any other person affected by the decision, may request the ACMA to reconsider its decision (see regulation 5.32).

Matters to consider in granting research authorisation

             (2)  In determining whether a research entity will comply with the conditions of the authorisation, the ACMA must have regard to the following:

                     (a)  the practices, procedures, processes and systems the entity has in place, or intends to put in place, to comply with the conditions of the authorisation;

                     (b)  if the entity has previously been covered by a research authorisation—the extent to which the entity has complied with, or is complying with, the conditions of that authorisation;

                     (c)  if the entity has been granted an IPND Scheme authorisation—the extent to which the entity has complied with, or is complying with, the conditions of that authorisation;

                     (d)  the extent to which the entity’s collection, use and disclosure of personal information has complied with, or is consistent with, the Privacy Act 1988 (whether or not that Act applies to the entity).

             (3)  In determining whether paragraph (1)(c) is satisfied, if the research entity has previously been covered by a research authorisation, the ACMA must have regard to the extent to which the entity complied with regulation 5.30 or 5.31 after that authorisation ended or the entity was removed from that authorisation.

             (4)  Subregulations (2) and (3) do not limit the matters that the ACMA may have regard to.

Deemed refusal to grant research authorisation

             (5)  For the purposes of Subdivision 5.2.6 (review of decisions), if the ACMA does not make a decision on the application under subregulation (1) within the period covered by subregulation (6), the ACMA is taken to have decided not to grant the authorisation.

             (6)  The period covered by this subregulation is the period that ends at the later of:

                     (a)  90 days after receiving the application; or

                     (b)  if the ACMA has, within those 90 days, given any research entity a written request for further information under subregulation 5.9(1)—90 days after the end of the period for compliance with the last request made under that subregulation.

6.2  Use of infringement notices

                     (a)  by giving it to the individual personally; or

                     (b)  by leaving it at, or sending it by post to, the residential or business address of the individual that is last known to the authorised person; or

                     (c)  by giving it, at the place of residence or business that is last known to the authorised person, to a person who the authorised person reasonably believes:

                             (ii)  lives or works at the place.

             (2)  An authorised person may serve an infringement notice on a body corporate:

6.5  Extension of time to pay

             (1)  On written application by a person within 28 days after service of an infringement notice on the person, an authorised person may grant, if satisfied that in all the circumstances it is reasonable to do so, a further period of up to 14 days for payment of the infringement notice penalty.

             (2)  The authorised person must:

                     (a)  grant or refuse a further period; and

                             (ii)  the infringement notice penalty was not paid in accordance with this Part;

                     (d)  a certificate signed by an authorised person that states that:

                             (ii)  the infringement notice penalty was not paid in accordance with the infringement penalty notice or within the further time.
