Banking Code of Practice

The Banking Code of Practice sets the Australian standard for best practice banking and outlines our key commitments and obligations. We subscribe to the Code so we can help keep your finances safe and secure. It represents our commitment to ethical behaviour, responsible lending, better financial protection and increased transparency.

Changes to the Code

The updated Banking Code of Practice which commenced on 1 March 2020 is intended to implement recommendations from the Royal Commission. From 1 March 2020, we will comply with these new changes.

The Australian Banking Association has made temporary changes to the 1 March 2020 Banking Code of Practice to reflect that the COVID-19 pandemic may temporarily affect the provision of banking services. These changes are in place from 1 July 2020 until 1 March 2021.
