About this guide

On-boarding is the process of a participant new to the CDR ecosystem preparing to commence active participation. The goal of the on-boarding process is to confidently introduce data holders and Accredited Persons who may receive data (data recipients), into the ecosystem.

In this guide we refer to participants to cover both data holders and data recipients.

A more detailed overview of the on-boarding process can be found in the on-boarding process section of this document. Moreover, this guide will provide information for participants on technical, legal and testing requirements, and outlines the steps to be completed before the participant can be activated on the CDR Register.

The on-boarding process outlined in this document does not apply to existing data holders who wish to on-board an additional brand. Data holders in this situation should email the ACCC for guidance.
