 21Electronic Access Control System Code of Practice—STATEMENT BY SPEAKER

The Speaker made the following statement:  

As Members would be aware, the Electronic Access Control System (EACS) is the computer-based security card system that has replaced the old physical locking infrastructure throughout Parliament House.

The system is designed to control access to Parliament House. Specifically, it allows authorised pass holders entry into secure areas by using a security pass authenticated by access control readers. EACS has been designed to facilitate remote lockdown capabilities in the event of a major incident or emergency and has been progressively installed throughout the House of Representatives wing over the past two years. 

In contrast, for various reasons, the system is not fully installed or operational in the Senate wing. However, after extended negotiations, I can now advise the House that agreement has been reached on a Code of Practice. The EACS Code of Practice provides the framework for the management of EACS data over which there may be claims of privilege. It applies to all parliamentary department employees and contractors, Australian Federal Police and building occupants who manage, operate or use the EACS including the viewing, storing, accessing, releasing or disposing of data.

I wish to thank all the members of the House Standing Committee on Appropriations and Administration for sensible consideration of the development of the Code, particularly the Chief Government and Chief Opposition Whips. Should honourable members have any questions or concerns about the operation of the EACS they should contact the Serjeant’s office or my office at any time.
