Privacy impact assessments

Government institutions routinely perform broad risk management activities and develop risk profiles related to their programs and activities. The privacy impact assessment (PIA) is the component of risk management that focuses on ensuring compliance with the Privacy Act requirements and assessing the privacy implications of new or substantially modified programs and activities involving personal information. In accordance with the Directive on PIA, summary reports of the approved PIAs have to be made available to the public.
