Policy and Standards

DataVic Access Policy

DataVic Access Policy

Publicly accessible APIs in the Developer.Vic portal are made available in accordance with the DataVic Access Policy

The DataVic Access Policy encourages Victorian agencies to make datasets freely available to the public, where possible. The Policy was developed to enable public access to government data to support research and education, innovation, and improvements in productivity and growth in the Victorian economy.

API Design Standards

The API Team is a key contributor to, and enthusiastic advocate of the National API Design Standard available at https://api.gov.au/standards/.

The standards promote consistency and interoperability in the development of APIs and guide users through the full API lifecycle including design, development, build and management.

We welcome contributions to the development of the Standards through the Community of Practice, and through a dedicated GitHub community at https://github.com/apigovau/api-gov-au.
