This Act regulates the transport of flammable, toxic, corrosive and other substances such as petrol, acetylene, liquefied petroleum gas, chlorine, arsenic and acids. These goods, due to their physical, chemical and toxicological properties, pose a significant risk to human life, health, property and the environment, especially while being transported.
The sharing, collection and use of data must be part of a project that is for one or more of the defined data sharing purposes, and must be done consistently with the data sharing principles and under a registered data sharing agreement that meets the requirements of this Act. Privacy protections apply to the sharing of personal information.
Data may be shared directly with an accredited user, or through an intermediary accredited for the purpose (called an ADSP, short for accredited data service provider).
The National Data Commissioner is the regulator of the data sharing scheme and also has the function of providing education and support in relation to handling public sector data.
The Commissionerâ€™s regulatory functions include accrediting ADSPs and users other than Commonwealth, State and Territory bodies. The Minister has the function of accrediting such bodies as users.
The Commissioner also has functions relating to handling complaints and powers to require information and to assess, monitor and investigate data scheme entities.
Data scheme entities have responsibilities under the Act. A range of enforcement options are available to the Commissioner.
This Act mainly relies for its constitutional basis on the matters set out in subsection 13(4) (constitutional requirements for authorisation for data custodian to share public sector data) (but see also subsections 42(2) and 61(2)).
Under section 7 (6) the Minister cannot give directions for data sharing with DAC to the University.
The Act states, as a minimum, an employer must:
- not discriminate against an employee because they are, were or are going to be a Reserve member of the Australian Defence Force (ADF)

- not prevent or hinder, in any way, an employee from rendering Defence Reserve service
- re-employ a Reservist after they return from Defence Reserve service
- treat the employee as on leave without pay during call-out and protected voluntary Continuous Full Time Service (CFTS).

- pay civilian employment remuneration
- grant civilian employment entitlements
- meet their worker's compensation law obligations to pay premiums, contributions or similar payments
- meet their obligations under the Superannuation guarantee (Administration) Act 1992.
