Joint consumer submission on the second tranche of proposed Credit Reporting Code Variations

CCLSWA welcomed the opportunity to comment on the second tranche of the proposed Credit Reporting Code (CR Code) Variations and is pleased to have contributed to a joint submission prepared by the Financial Rights Legal Centre in consultation with the Consumer Action Law Centre and the Australian Privacy Foundation.

The submission includes recommendations regarding:

  • the conduct of Credit Reporting Bodies (CRBs) with regard to direct marketing practices;
  • information available on free credit reports;
  • protections for victims of fraud; and
  • the use of repayment history information on credit reports
