Australia’s digital ID legislation

After years of delays and reorganizations, Australia’s national digital identity system may be on the horizon.

Recently, the country’s Finance Minister Katy Gallagher said that the legislation for the federally-backed digital ID could be in place by mid-2024.

The digital ID would initially be regulated by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and later by a specific digital regulator.
