Consumer Action has, in conjunction with five other consumer and privacy advocate organisations, made a submission to the review of the Credit Reporting Code of Conduct.
An industry code should be seeking to set standards of best practice and deliver tangible outcomes for consumers. The fact that this is a mandatory code should not diminish those objectives. We are concerned that the Code does not deliver on those objectives as currently drafted. This submission makes recommendations that would (if accepted) assist in meeting the objectives.
