CONDITIONS OF USE
CONFIDENTIALISED UNIT RECORD FILES (CURF)
The Census and Statistics Act 1905 allows the Australian Statistician to approve release of unit record data. All CURFs released have been approved by the Statistician. Prior to being granted access to CURFs, each organisation's Responsible Officer must submit a CURF Undertaking to the ABS. The CURF Undertaking is required by legislation and states that, prior to CURFs being released to an organisation, a Responsible Officer must undertake to ensure that the organisation will abide by the conditions of use of CURFs. Individual users are bound by the undertaking signed by the Responsible Officer.
All CURF users are required to read and abide by the conditions and restrictions in the Responsible Use of ABS Microdata, User Guide (cat. no. 1406.0.55.003). Any breach of the CURF undertaking may result in withdrawal of service to individuals and/or organisations. Further information is contained in the Consequences of Failing to Comply with a Microdata Undertaking web page.
