Forms you may need to sign are available on the Downloads tab at the top of this page, including:

  • Individual Undertaking U15I

ABS legislation requires that before access to microdata can be granted by the ABS, the Responsible Officer of an organisation must sign a legally binding undertaking.

An Individual Undertaking is required to be signed by each user prior to accessing the DataLab. The ABS will let you know if an Individual Undertaking is a requirement of your microdata access under any other circumstances.

DataLab forms

A Declaration of Compliance is required to be signed by each user prior to accessing the DataLab. By signing the Declaration of Compliance you agree to comply with the requirements for accessing microdata through the DataLab, including the requirements of the Responsible Officer Undertaking and the Individual Undertaking.

You may also need a DataLab Referral. Less experienced researchers must be supervised by another researcher on the same project.

Further forms may also be required to enable access to particular datasets.
