The Government has registered the Competition and Consumer Amendment (Consumer Data Right Measures No. 1) Regulations 2022 to give non-major authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs) an extra 3 months to implement joint account data sharing, before their Consumer Data Right (CDR) obligations commence. Background.

There is no change to the proviso that any joint account holder may withdraw a consent for data sharing on an account at any time.

The new commencement date of 1 October 2022 gives non-major ADIs sufficient time to build the information technology infrastructure required to comply with obligations that had been scheduled to commence on 1 July 2022.

The Regulations apply only to non-major ADIs, and amend the timetable for the roll-out of CDR obligations only in relation to joint accounts.

The regulation amends the timetable in subclause 6.6(1) of Schedule 3 to the Competition and Consumer (Consumer Data Right) Rules 2020.
