Australian Farm Data Code

The Australian Farm Data Code (the Code) was developed and adopted by the National Farmers’ Federation in consultation with industry.

The Code is intended to inform the policies of service providers who manage data on behalf of farmers. It is also a yardstick by which farmers can evaluate the policies of those providers.

Benefits to farmers include:

  • increased awareness and understanding of the ways in which providers are collecting, using and sharing their farm data;
  • a framework to compare providers and inform negotiations about data policies; and,
  • improvements to industry-wide data practices over time.

Benefits for service providers include:

  • clear and agreed guidance on data policies; and,
  • a helpful framework to inform discussions with farmers about data.

Regional Rural & Remote Communications Coalition

The Regional, Rural and Remote Communications Coalition (RRRCC) is a group of like-minded organisations who have come together to end the data drought and to champion better communications services for consumers and small businesses living in rural, remote or regional areas.

The National Farmers’ Federation is a secretary of the RRRCC alongside Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN).

The Coalition works on policies for improving telecommunications in rural and remote communities. 

More information about the RRRCC can be found in the information booklet, here.
