About Open Banking in Australia
Following in the footsteps of more progressed Open Banking regimes – the United Kingdom in particular – the move towards Open Banking in Australia started in 2017 when the Federal Government announced a Royal Commission into the banking, superannuation and financial services industry. As a result, the introduction of a Consumer Data Right (CDR) by the ACCC and associated changes to legislation affecting the banking sector were announced in 2018.
On 1 July 2020, the CDR launched in Australia, signalling a watershed moment for the future of the financial sector in our country.
The CDR will ultimately give consumers more control over their banking data and how it is used. It enables them to safely share banking data with trusted third parties such as banks, fintechs and mortgage brokers, helping to significantly streamline many processes where financial data is required.
In short, CDR offers greater transparency for consumers, making it easier for them to manage their finances and get better deals – while also driving more opportunities for innovation and competition across the finance sector.
But change at this scale doesn’t happen at the flick of a switch. Australia’s Open Banking implementation timeline currently stretches to February 2022 with a number of key milestones and a lot of upcoming work still ahead.
CDR timeline for Open Banking
Accounts: Savings, Call, Current, Cheque, Debit card, Transaction, Personal basic, GST & Tax accounts, Term deposits , Credit and charge cards (personal & business)

Business finance, investment loan, lines of credit (personal & business), overdrafts (personal & business), asset finance (including leases), consumer leases, accounts: cash management, farm management, pensioner deeming, retirement savings, trust & foreign currency
The timeline above doesn't include everything that's on the horizon for the Consumer Data Right. A number of exciting things are currently in consultation or being considered.
