Who can access th emotor vehicle register?

Alex Harris made this Official Information Act request to New Zealand Transport Agency

The request was successful.

From: Alex Harris

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

NZTA has recently widened access to the motor vehicle register and
associated personal information. Its opt-out website
(https://transact.nzta.govt.nz/transactio...)
notes that the agency provides information in bulk to those with
special "authorisation". It notes that this may include "insurers,
finance companies and motor vehicle traders".

I would like to request the following information under the
Official Information Act 1982:

* a list of all persons, companies, agencies, orgnaisations or
other bodies who have been granted such an authorisation for bulk
access to the vehicle register.
* the process by which such an authorisation is applied for
* the criteria considered when granting or refusing to grant such
an authorisation.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about
this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the
fyi.org.nz website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris

This response from the NZTA refers to an attachment, which lists the organisations that have a streamlined backdoor to the register. These organisations can access the personal information of people who have told the registrar to withhold access. This attachment is missing from the respones. I have made a new OIA for this list.
