Abstract

This very early paper on Australian data privacy laws considers how subject access principles would be applicable to information systems using free text retrieval systems, in response to an earlier paper considering this issue from the perspective of relational databases. The paper considers the subject access principles proposed by the NSW Privacy Committee (1977), the OECD (1980) and the Australian Law Reform Commission (1983).
