Banking codes of practice

Our vision for responsible customer-focused banking. We're committed to best practice standards that serve and protect our customers.

What’s on this page

Bank Australia is a member of the Australian Banking Association, which represents the Australian banking industry. As a member of the ABA, we subscribe to the Banking Code of Practice, effective from 1 March 2021.

The ABA Code sets out a range of ethical and customer focused standards and behaviours that protect and serve individual and small businesses customers, and their guarantors as defined by the code.. These are underpinned by four core principles:  

  • Trust and confidence
  • Integrity
  • Service
  • Transparency and accountability

Further information about the Banking Code of Practice is available at the Australian Banking Association website.
