Application to register the credit reporting code

On 1 July 2013 the Australasian Retail Credit Association (ARCA) lodged an application with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner for the registration of a new credit reporting (CR) code.

ARCA's application for registration is in response to a request from the Australian Privacy Commissioner, in December 2012, for ARCA to develop the CR code as part of the suite of privacy reforms that will come into effect on 12 March 2014.

The application and accompanying documents are now available. The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner is currently reviewing the application and proposed CR code.
