Open Banking

On 9 May 2018 the Government announced its intention to introduce a new Consumer Data Right (CDR) law in Australia. Put simply, the Consumer Data Right puts control of your data in your hands.

In Australia, ‘Open Banking’ is the banking sector’s implementation of the CDR.

BT is part of the Westpac Group.  The Westpac Group CDR Policy provides information about how BT manages data under the Consumer Data Right.
