The Australian Privacy Foundation has issued a statement that begins:

The APF has became aware that the EU-Australia Passenger Name Record (PNR) Agreement is being renegotiated.

But we have onily learnt this  via our European colleagues.  This is symptomatic of the general failure of either the Australian government or the Australian Privacy Commissioner to consult civil society or otherwise facilitate public debate about this important data exchange, which involves significant intrusion into the personal affairs of airline passengers entering and leaving Australia, without their express knowledge or consent.
