Embracing the 2025 Banking Code: How Skyjed Can Guide Your Compliance Journey

A New Chapter in Banking: The 2025 Code Arrives

ASIC has recently approved the latest iteration of the Banking Code of Practice, slated for implementation on February 28, 2025. This updated Code marks a renewed commitment by the banking industry to continue to prioritise customer interests and enhance regulatory compliance.

Why This Code Matters: Elevating Customer Protection

The February 2025 Banking Code introduces several key enhancements aimed at bolstering customer protections and operational standards across the banking sector:

  • Expanded Small Business Eligibility: Increasing the aggregate borrowing limit from $3 million to $5 million, extending coverage to an additional 10,000 businesses.
  • Enhanced Inclusivity and Accessibility: New provisions ensure improved access for diverse customer needs, including interpreter services and enhanced accessibility of information.
    Deceased Estates and Guarantor Protections: Clarified guidelines strengthen protections concerning deceased estates and outline clearer obligations towards loan guarantors.
  • Broader Definition of Financial Difficulty: Encompassing a wider range of financial challenges, this update aims to provide better support to customers facing economic hardships.

From 1993 to 2025: The Code's Evolution

Since its inception in 1993, the Banking Code has undergone iterative updates, each reflecting a commitment to adaptability and responsiveness to evolving regulatory expectations and consumer needs.

ASIC's Vision: Customers at the Heart of Banking

ASIC Chair Joe Longo emphasises that customer-focused banking is paramount. The approval of the February 2025 Code underscores ASIC's dedication to ensuring robust consumer protections and fostering a trustworthy financial environment.
