About this course

The Banking Code of Practice sets out the standards of practice and service in the Australian Banking Industry for individual and small business customers and their guarantors. The code provides safeguards and protections not set out in the law, rather it complements the law and sets higher standards than legislation.

The code applies to individuals, small businesses and guarantors who provide a banking service or information. Small businesses are businesses with:

  • An annual turnover of less than $10 million in the previous financial year;
  • Less than 100 full-time (or equivalent employees); or
  • Less than $3 million total debt to all credit providers.

Safetrac’s ‘Banking Code of Practice’ course ensures that staff are trained on the information provided in the code which has taken effect from the 1st of July 2019. It is a condition of membership of the Australian Banking Association (ABA) that member banks with a retail presence in Australia are required to sign up to the Code.
