Parliamentary Library of Australia, Australia: Telecommunications Data Retention-An Overview (Oct. 24, 2012) (full-text).

Overview Edit

In July 2012, the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department released a Discussion Paper, "Equipping Australia against emerging and evolving threats, on the proposed national security reforms. . . ." Of the 18 primary proposals and the 41 individual reforms that they comprise, the suggestion that carriage service providers (CSPs) be required to routinely retain certain information associated with every Australian's use of the Internet and telephone services for a period of up to two years ("data retention") is the issue that seems to have attracted the most attention.
