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
