A major reason why we undertake targeted compliance and enforcement action is to achieve outcomes that act as a deterrent to other businesses not to engage in unacceptable behaviour.
Publicising the outcomes of our compliance and enforcement actions is therefore vital to achieving this deterrent effect.
However, information is only publicly released when we consider it is in the public interest to do so, having regard to circumstances of the case, the stage of an investigation and the parties involved in the matter, and in compliance with privacy law.
Details of recent compliance and enforcement activities can be found at:
