Handling Third-party Data

Supply of data to the Bureau by organisations who outsource data collection

Some organisations named in the Water Regulations 2008 employ service providers such as contractors or other agencies to collect and store data on their behalf. With few exceptions, this information is defined under the regulations as being in the named organisation's control, although it may not be stored in their database. The named organisations are therefore required to ensure its provision to the Bureau.

Handling third party data

In the case where information is being sourced from a third party service provider, the Bureau can, on instruction from the named organisation, provide a separate FTP login to the service provider. The service provider can then supply data into their own FTP account on behalf of a named person. Please contact us if this situation applies to your organisation.
