NSW-RMS - Overview
The NSW Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) (previously the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA)) is responsible for road safety, vehicle registration and driver licensing in NSW, and is responsible for over 4 million drivers and over 5 million vehicles. The agency’s management of state drivers’ licenses makes it a key agency in government-operated identification systems.
NSW-RMS / RTA - Facial Recognition System PIA (2009)
Galexia prepared a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for a Facial Recognition System to be used by the (then) NSW Roads and Traffic Authority for proof of identity and related functions, including as a tool for combating criminal activities such as money laundering and drug trafficking.
NSW-RMS / RTA - Document Verification Service Privacy Impact Assessment (November 2007)
Galexia conducted a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the (then) NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA). The PIA covered the agency’s potential participation in the national Document Verification Service (DVS).
The DVS has been developed as part of the National Identity Security Strategy. The DVS will be a secure, electronic, on-line system accessible by certain Australian Government, state and territory agencies to check the validity of an identity document. The verification of driver licences will be completed via the National Exchange of Vehicle and Driver Information System (NEVDIS) database, operated by Austroads.
